The Turner Free School School Uniform

School Uniform

Our uniform has been chosen with great care. Our priority was to find a uniform that is smart, fit for purpose, economical and easy to care for. Our dress code is practical and allows a choice within very clear boundaries. The dress code applies both within school and on the journey to and from school.

We took into consideration input we had from prospective parents and pupils to help us make our final decisions.

We ask in return that you and your children take care that they all come to school in the correct uniform and that each item is clean and clearly named.
