|As we want everyone associated with The Buckingham School to be proud of its achievements, we believe that a visual sense of belonging to a community is important, and, to this end, we require that school uniform is worn by our students. Parental support is vital in this, and we hope that the uniform is both practical and reasonable.|
By choosing The Buckingham School, it is assumed that both parents and students are accepting our insistence on the wearing of school uniform.
Please note: Order forms are available from school Reception. Items may be purchased from department stores but may not be acceptable as part of school uniform and parents are advised to check with the school before purchase. Information on the purchase of uniform and ties will be available as part of the induction information.
It is advisable to have a sensible dark plain outdoor coat or jacket (not leather or denim or 'hoody'/tracksuit tops/sweatshirt or materials that look like any of these)
School Uniform Consultation
Please read our consultation letter here which explains why we would like to change our uniform at this point, and why we think it will benefit the community - cost, quality, etc. It also explains the phasing in of the new uniform - no current students would be required to replace current items until September 2023, when the current Year 7 and Year 8 would be required to change.
We do see this change as an important part of our "raising standards" message. The community has a school it is rightly proud of, and raising uniform standards yet further, will support this sentiment.
Here is a link to a family survey. Please complete the survey by 4pm on Tuesday 5th April.
