St Nicholas School Uniform Guidance

St Nicholas has a smart distinctive uniform worn by all the pupils. This is complimented by a range of PE kit and clothes provided by the school for key activities such as choir or sporting competitions.  Our children are rightfully proud of their school and this shows in the way they display themselves in their uniform. 

All school jumpers and cardigans should be ordered from Essential Schoolwear from September 2018. No supermarket brands or knitted jumpers.

 Just go to the website: www.essentialschoolwear.com and click on the red button on the right hand side that says “Parent Ordering”.  This takes you to the page where you can register, log-in, see the returns policy, or the privacy policy.

 Parents will have the option of having their order delivered to their home address for a postage charge or delivered to school free of charge. Please make sure you read all the washing instructions carefully and name all items of uniform.  

 Permanent marker pens are available for sale from the school office for £2 each.

Trousers, skirts and pinafore dresses are available in most chain stores.
