King's School uniform is smart, stylish and distinctive. Our logo represents the Holy Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The uniform is affordable, durable, machine washable and ethically sourced.
We believe that good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and identify our students to local residents and future employers. The co-operation of all parents/carers is requested to ensure that students are in correct uniform to and from school as well as during normal school hours. Please note, King’s makes the final decision as to what is acceptable in all aspects of a student's appearance.
