The wearing of uniform is warmly recommended and encouraged. Uniform reduces the need for unnecessary expenditure by parents to meet changes in fashion and is a contributory factor to a good school community atmosphere.
The uniform is the standard low-cost school wear available through most retailers with the addition of the purple Lochardil School tie and the purple v-neck sweatshirt available from the school:
Boys : Grey trousers, grey socks, grey shirt, school tie*, grey pullover or purple v-neck sweatshirt *;
Girls : Grey skirt or trousers, white socks, white blouse, school tie*, grey cardigan or purple v-neck sweatshirt *;
*ordered from the school in November and May
Suggested for gym days and P.E. activities:
White or purple polo shirts * and black shorts or cycle shorts
* ordered from the school in November and May
To reduce the undue influence of fashion trends, it is recommended that designer sweatshirts, sports and football wear should not be worn to school on an everyday basis.
