Uniform

At King Edward VI School we believe that smart School attire is an essential part of our ethos. In this section, you will find details on our uniform expectations, policies and uniform supplier, Stevensons. 

Occasionally, a pupil may not meet our uniform expectations. If this is the case, a member of the Pastoral Team may issue the pupil with a uniform report to encourage them to take pride their appearance.

School Uniform Information for First (Year 7) to Fifth Year (Year 11)

A new uniform will be available and compulsory for new starters from September 2022. 

The uniform changes have been made in consultation with staff, parents and pupils, who have provided feedback and thoughts throughout the process. Full information on the new uniform can be found in the below document, which also outlines how the additions will be phased across the School. It will be compulsory for all members of the School from September 2024. 

The sports kit has not changed and there are no plans afoot to make any changes.
