What We Wear

At The British International School Bratislava we believe that wearing smart uniform helps students to feel like a part of a special and unique school community. They love to wear them and they wear them with pride.

During 2018/19 the School will introduce a new school uniform which all students should be in by September 2019. In the 2018/19 year, students will be able to wear a mix of the old and new uniform depending upon availability in the school uniform shop.

  • New uniforms Rec- y6 girls
  • New uniforms Rec- y6 boys
  • New uniforms Y7- Y11 girls
  • New uniforms Y7- Y11 BOYS

New School Uniform

This uniform must be worn from September 2019 by all students. However, it is envisaged that during 2018/19, due to reducing old stock in the uniform shop, that some new uniform items may also be worn.
