School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting the tone for learning. It can help to:
• Encourage a sense of pride in the school
• Support positive behaviour and discipline
• Encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos
• Ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome
• Protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way.
Following feedback from parents we have introduced an online ordering system via our suppliers, RAM leisure in Wrexham. This means parents can order direct for delivery to home and can order at times convenient to them rather than waiting for the school to bulk order.

Look Smart, Work Smart – UNIFORM
We expect all our students to arrive at school prepared for the day’s lessons. They will need to bring a school bag containing at least their planner, two pens, two pencils, ruler and an eraser. Students are expected to have a work like appearance – if they wear ear rings, these should be small studs or sleepers which can be easily removed for safety reasons when required. Facial piercing is not permitted. Hair should be of a natural monochrome colour. Hair should be no shorter than a ‘grade 2’ and without ‘tramlines’. Long hair should be tied back in practical lessons. If students do wish to wear make up this should be ‘natural’. Acrylic or gel nails are not appropriate for school - they hinder students in practical lessons and are a health and safety issue.
Footwear should be plain black leather type shoes with black laces if worn. Trainers and canvas style shoes are not acceptable - see downloads at bottom of the page for examples.
Grey school trousers or skirt, with polo shirt and school sweatshirt or cardigan
School PE top is optional – pupils may wear plain white t shirt and plain black shorts

To ensure the right choices are made when buying uniform please see the attached guidance. Students who come into school incorrectly dressed may spend the day in ‘isolation’, be given uniform to borrow for the day or could be sent home.
