A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all members of the Blatch community. Our guiding principles for the uniform are: value for money, durability and comfort.
Tutors will check that the correct Uniform is being worn. If there are temporary problems concerning the wearing of the correct school uniform, a note of explanation to the Tutor is required from a parent/carer.
Buying School Uniform
School Uniform can be purchased online from the Khalsa Schoolwear website. The Uniform providers also visit the school to take orders. Details of the next visit to the School are published on the School Noticeboard when they have been arranged.
We have a stock of ties that can be purchased in school from the finance office.
The school uniform is gender neutral and where a choice of items is applicable these are available to all students. Primarily this may affect skirts, trousers, and shorts. The uniform is the same for all year groups and consists of a school jumper, shirt, tie, and a choice of skirt, trousers or (in the summer term only) shorts.
