The new style school dress will be available to view in the school foyer from 20th April 2012 and will appear on the school web-site shortly. Initially, the new clothes will be purchased direct from school, the cost of the v-neck jumpers will be around £11.50 for sizes up to 34” and £13.50 for 36” upwards. After the summer break ordering will be online or by post at around £15.00 for sizes up to 34” and £17.00 for 36” upwards.
All students in Years 7 – 11 will receive their first school tie free of charge. Thereafter the clip-on ties will be £7.00, again ordered online or by post. (We have decided on clip‑on ties for health and safety reasons).
Order forms will be distributed shortly after Easter and arrangements will be made for collection after the Spring Bank Holiday.
We have decided not to order white shirts – as they are readily available on the high street and you may choose long or short sleeved shirts.
We understand that in this economic climate some parents may struggle to purchase new clothes, especially for those moving into Year 11. As we intend this to be compulsory for all, we have a small contingency fund to help. Anyone who would like to take advantage of this should contact Mr S Coates and all requests will, of course, be treated in strictest confidence.
We hope you will be as delighted with this as we are, we are impressed by the fact that it was the students themselves who suggested the change and worked hard on the design and that you will give this initiative your full support.
