GETTING OFF TO A GOOD START IN SEPTEMBER........................................

Further to the letter you will have received regarding school uniform, in particular appropriate footwear, we would like to offer you some guidance to help you to avoid any unnecessary footwear purchases.  In the meantime if you have any queries with regards to footwear, please do not hesitate to contact your child's House Office, who will be very happy to assist you. Reply slips are due in by Tuesday 19th July. Thank you in advance for your support.

Please note: this is not an exhaustive list. It simply serves to illustrate some examples of all black, standard, school-style shoes appropriate for school. If in doubt, please call your child’s House Team before buying. Please do not ask staff in local shoe shops as they only want to sell shoes and are not aware of our uniform policy.
