Penn UK will be trading ONLINE ONLY for the whole of the back to school period.

The shop will only open for click and collect orders and booked time slots will be allocated by them. It is essential that you place your uniform order with them as soon as possible and do not leave it to the last minute, otherwise they may not have enough time to fulfill your order ready for the start of school in September.

Penn UK are now offering an appointment service for trying on uniform, this will be FOR NEW STARTERS ONLY (Year 6 students) and will run the whole of July. Please book early to ensure your students order is placed as soon as possible, as there are still ongoing supplier shipping issues. 

All students are expected to wear school uniform.  Our aim is that every student develops a sense of pride in themselves in relation to their appearance and as members of the school and community.

We do ask that parents support and co-operate with us in this matter by sending their children to school in the correct uniform.  It is also beneficial if items of school uniform are marked with the students name so that lost or mislaid items are quickly returned to their owner.

For full details of all school uniform requirements please refer to the downloads on the right-hand side and also to the requirements below.
