School Uniform

We are very proud of our school uniform, which is both attractive and practical.

Our uniform suppliers are OTTIS; a local company run by Paul & Kerry Bashford, based close to the school, in Hatfield Heath.

OTTIS provide a very personal and speedy service.  During the summer holidays they offer an appointment-based system to ensure you have time to go through all the uniform requirements without interruption, and in addition to visiting their shop you can telephone or email through your order and your items can be delivered directly to the school at no extra charge.

It is imperative that all clothing items are named.  Sewn in labels are available to order from OTTIS.

You can contact OTTIS on (01279) 731052 or email
