Uniform

    Our uniform list shows the items of uniform and sports kit that your child will need to ensure that they are correctly and smartly dressed at all times. Children should be in Summer uniform until October half term and then in Winter uniform until the end of the Spring term.

    The majority of the items are available from the The Schools’ Uniform Shop at our partner school; King Edward’s Witley, or via our online service (details below).  The uniform list indicates what items of uniform are available online or can be purchased in the shop.

    Labelling and alterations

    The marking of all uniform, kit and equipment, shoes, swimming towels and home clothes brought in to School is essential. It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that every item is clearly marked. 

    We advise that sew-on name tapes are used. We recommend using Woven Labels UK.

    All kit used for activities e.g. Judo and Forest School must also be clearly named.

    Hanging loops must be sewn on painting and lunch aprons and tracksuit bottoms for children in Pre-Prep.

    The Sewing Room at King Edward’s, can label your child’s uniform or make alterations at a competitive price.
