With your support the school has made a concerted effort over the last few years to improve the standard of the school uniform, helping to make the school a safer and more ordered environment for all our young people. My first impression of the uniform has been very positive with the vast majority of pupils adhering to the stated code of dress and I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for their cooperation in this matter.
At the request of many parents and carers we are introducing, as an option, a grey tartan skirt. To help distinguish between the S5 and S6 students an extra piece of braiding on the sleeve of the S6 blazer has also been introduced.
