Uniform is a very important part of our school. It promotes a sense of identity, avoids divisiveness and helps create and foster in every student a sense of personal pride and pride in the school. Uniform provides practical clothing for the very many different tasks to be done during a busy day. It also prepares students for the reality of work where uniform of one sort or another is often expected. The uniform at St Mary’s is outstanding and we would like this excellent standard to continue and appreciate parental support in ensuring that this is the case. Most of the uniform must be purchased through the school and can be purchased throughout the year online via Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd.

For all our students to enjoy success at school and to reach their full potential, they need to be fully equipped for lessons and avoid any distractions. In order to achieve this, the following guidelines must be adhered to:

  • All students must have a dark-coloured, practical A4-sized school bag (or bigger) which should not be a fashion item
  • No headphones are allowed in school
  • Mobile phones must be switched off and out of sight during the school day
  • All students must have two pens, a pencil, rubber, ruler, protractor and a calculator
  • All students must carry their planner and fill this in every lesson
