School Uniform

Proposed uniform changes

Thank you to all of the parents that attended the Uniform Consultation Evening and to those who have provided feedback via email.

 

We have now altered the initial proposal based on your feedback and therefore the uniform changes will be introduced over an 18 month period for students who will be in Years 8 and above in September 2020. Year 7 students starting at Park High School in September 2020 will be required to wear the new uniform and PE kit.

This decision was made in consultation with parents so that uniform could be purchased as and when it was needed to be replaced within that timeframe. This will enable parents to spread the cost of purchasing new uniform over a longer period of time. Consequently, all students will be wearing the new uniform by March 2022. This will be subject to staff and student consultation prior to the approval of the governing body.

In order to emphasise our family ethos, students will wear a specific tie which represents their House. Senior students will have a different tie; representing their year group.
