Our Secondary Uniform

School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.

A school uniform can: 

  • instil pride
  • support positive behaviour
  • encourage identity with the school ethos
  • protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way

We believe that a smart school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.

SCHOOL UNIFORM SHOP

The uniform shop, which is located in the Primary school, is open from Monday to Friday, from 9:00am to 3:30pm. We highly recommend that you buy black school shoes before you come to China, as they can be quite difficult to source here.

LABELLING CLOTHES AND OTHER ITEMS

All clothes worn to school should be clearly labeled on the inside of the item with the student’s name. We do have a lost property area in which we keep clothing and bags found in school. We make every effort to reunite items with their owners, but this can be very difficult if they are not named. Any uncollected items are donated to charity at the end of each school year.

LETTING US KNOW ABOUT UNIFORM PROBLEMS

We understand that there are sometimes genuine problems that prevent students from being able to wear uniform, such as torn clothing or missing shoes. In these circumstances, we would be grateful if parents could write a brief note or email to their child’s form tutor.

OTHER ITEMS

Students need a suitable bag to carry books, pens and other items around the campus during the school day, and to take work between home and school. Suitable bags are available from the school shop, but students may bring their own bags provided that they are of a sensible colour and design, and that they do not have ostentatious logos or patterns.

LOST PROPERTY

Lost, un-named clothing and bags are held in Lost Property. We make every effort to reunite items with their owner, but this can be very difficult if they are not named. Uncollected items are donated to charity at the end of each school year.
