We are proud of our school uniform which is casual, comfortable to wear and easy to keep clean.  We expect all pupils to wear it correctly and with pride at all times and we ask for parental cooperation and support to maintain high standards of uniform presentation. All pupils are expected to strictly follow the uniform code. All uniforms can be bought at El Corte Inglés (Castellana).
