Uniform and School Shop
Our uniform is very important to us and is an integral part of the school's ethos; one that promotes positive attitudes, high standards and gives students a sense of personal pride. We want our students to be proud of their school and our uniform allows them to demonstrate this. We would advise that all clothing is clearly named.
All of our uniform, complete with the school logo, can be purchased from our uniform supplier: Stevensons. They have a shop in Reading town centre: 11 Market Place, Reading, RG1 2EG.
Stevensons Store Opening Hours: 9.00am – 5.30pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) Closed – Wednesday and Sunday
Please note - due to a flood in their Branch, Stevensons in Reading will be temporarily closed until 3rd January 2023.
Please purchase uniform from them via their online store:
