School Uniform

The NS uniform has been developed with the DfE’s recent statutory guidance on the cost of school uniforms in mind and much of the uniform can be purchased from major stores, however, the majority of the uniform can be purchased from our supplier Sportswear International (SWI) and can be delivered directly to your home, or from September 2023, into school for collection by your child. A 'registration help' document can be found below for SWI.

Where items can only be purchased from the school (eg. ties and blazer badges) this can be done by using ParentPay.

If you do require any assistance, please the school on: 01604 815815.
