School Uniform

 We think it is important for all students to keep up a high standard of appearance so that the school’s excellent reputation is maintained in the local community. Students must wear school uniform at all times while on school premises and travelling to and from school. They may also be required to do so when on school trips.

We have introduced a new PE kit in our school colours, with the aim of making it easier for your son / daughter to ensure they have the correct kit.  Older children currently at Furze Platt may still wear their existing PE kits if preferred but it is compulsory for Year 7 and 8 students to wear the new kit.

Please help us to keep to our high standard of dress by ensuring that you buy the correct uniform for your child and that s/he wears it to school every day. Please also make sure that everything is clearly named so that Lost Property can be returned to its owner. We reserve the right to confiscate items that do not form part of the school uniform and students may be sent home to change if their uniform is unacceptable.

We have worked hard with our suppliers to ensure that our school uniform is practical, affordable and of a good quality, and we ask parents to support us in maintaining high standards of uniform. We hope the guidance below is clear enough so parents do not purchase inappropriate items; if you have any queries please get in contact before you make any purchases.  All items are available from Hawkinsport in Bourne End except Furze Platt Senior School ties which are in House colours and can be purchased at School Reception.
