UniformAll students must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. Uniform will also be worn on occasions when children are representing the school, including school visits.

Covid-19 Update from Trutex:

The new layout of the shop will enable us to serve customers in a safe way, observing the 2 metre social distancing rules and minimising risk. 

We would ask if you could encourage parents to obtain school uniform using our website www.myschoolwear.co.uk where possible during the current situation.

The fitting rooms at the shop will be closed and customers encouraged to try items of uniform on at home. We are happy to exchange anything that is the incorrect size as long as it is returned in a saleable condition.
