College Uniform

Posted: 31 August 2018

Dear Parents,

We have been informed that there have been some issues obtaining the college skirts for the start of term.

We have been in contact with school trends who are sorting out the supply issue as well as Lawsons who, we are aware have more stock in order to arrive soon.
Due to this unforeseen issue with obtaining the college skirts, can we take this opportunity to state the the new effective start date for the college skirt will be later than planned for parents to source the new skirt.

Therefore October half term will be the new date that we would like to work with parents on. In the meantime trousers or of course skirts that are the appropriate style and length may be worn. If there are any individual issues surrounding this please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Many thanks
Tristan Forster
Assistant principal

  • P1 9:05-10:05am
