School Uniform

School uniform helps to build a sense of identity as a school family and helps us to promote high expectations of each other.  Parents can order uniform online from Stevensons or visit their Harpenden shop. 

We are conscious of the financial pressures of family life and strive to make our school uniform as affordable as possible, by regularly reviewing our suppliers' products and prices and by keeping the number of school branded items to a minimum.  However, parents are free to source unbranded poloshirts and jumpers/cardigans from elsewhere in school colours.  We understand that Marks and Spenser stocks polo shirts in the same  gold and both Sainsbury and ASDA stock  similar cardigans and jumpers in the appropriate bottle green.  Alternatively, good quality pre-loved uniform is also available from our second hand uniform stock on a regular basis during the school year and at various advertised events. 

The Children should be smartly dressed as follows.

  • Gold High Beeches polo shirt with school emblem
