We consider uniform to be important for several reasons. It provides students with a sense of identity and belonging, it sets the tone for education, it gives our students pride in our school and minimises differences. 

We expect pupils to maintain a high standard of dress and we would ask parents to support our efforts in this.

We are anxious that uniform should not cost the earth and in line with the statutory guidance surrounding the cost of school uniforms, John Kyrle has assessed its uniform and believe it is affordable. If however you have any concerns about meeting the cost of your child's school uniform, please email and we will try and help.
