Covid-19 Update

In the current covid-19 pandemic, students will need to wear their PE kit to school on their PE days. We expect students to wear blazers at all times whilst inside the school, over their PE kit.  

Hoodies are not permitted, and are not to be worn in lieu of a school jumper, but can be worn for PE if carried separately whilst in school. 

Forest School/ Conservation Studies: If your child takes part in these lessons, they will need to bring a change of clothes to school to participate. 


Uniform is available from Super Stitch 86 at: SUPER STITCH 86 and Sussex Uniforms at: SUSSEX UNIFORMS

Essential Equipment

Students are required to bring to school every day a suitable school bag or rucksack and a stationery kit containing at least two pens and pencils.
