School Uniforms

Dear Parents,

Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, the only logo permitted to be worn on uniform clothing is the current school crest.  See the logo below.   Please keep this in mind when placing orders for new uniforms.

Any uniform with something other than the current school crest will not be permitted.

Due to issues with uniform ordering for the upcoming school year, we will allow the old crest for the 2019-20 school year only!  See the logo below.

No photo description available.

Any uniform with something other than the approved school crests will not be permitted.

Please note: Sports team jackets will no longer be permitted as part of our school uniform. They may ONLY be worn on dress-down days
