This is the time of year that we turn our mind to new school uniform so with the current restrictions on shopping we wanted to flag up options for you in the weeks ahead.

Our main provider, Uniforms Plus are located at 33 Tamworth Street, Lichfield, WS13 6JP and can be contacted on 01543 677068 / 07741 409272. They have also set up a website which can be accessed at:

Of course, many items on our uniform list can be purchased from alternative suppliers to help meet different budgets.

We have looked to support parents of Y10 and Y12 students by operating our Summer Term re-opening as non-school uniform so that there is no need to buy new items just before an inevitable summer holiday growth spurt.

We would also suggest that parents buy slightly larger sizes as we do not know yet whether school will be open as normal in September and a slightly larger item will mean a lengthier time period to get wear out of the item.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We are delighted that Uniforms Plus are going online at this time and having spoken to them they have assured us the are well-stocked in all items. All of this should help parents to ensure they child is fully kitted out for the September start.”
