School Uniform

Trust School Uniform Policy 2022/2023

In order to help create a sense of community there is a school uniform which it is expected all St. Ignatius children wear.

Please contact us if, for any reason, you feel you will struggle to provide a uniform, part of a uniform or a PE kit for your child(ren).

All items of clothing and footwear must be clearly marked with your childs name.

Earrings and other jewellery are a potentially dangerous hazard and must not be worn at school.

Most of the uniform is readily available in local shops, department stores or supermarkets. We also have a uniform partnership with Marks & Spencer – however, there is no obligation to use them.

Below is the St Ignatius school uniform (* indicates items only available from Marks & Spencer online –Your School Uniform : Marks & Spencer (mandsyourschooluniform.com)
