Please be advised that pupils will only be allowed to wear plain black trainer shoes or black shoes that are un-branded and do not have a logo. Please click here to access the letter that was sent to parents regarding uniform.

Advice and support

Holiday periods can sometimes be stressful for pupils without the routine of school. Please ensure your child stays physically active and reads as widely as possible to develop his vocabulary. Avoid spending too much time indoors playing on electronic devices, as this is not good for physical or mental well-being. Follow this link for details of support services that can be accessed over the school holiday.

We hope that you have a safe and happy summer holiday period and we look forward to welcoming our pupils back in September.

Best Wishes,
