School Uniform

We believe that a school uniform is important:

  • It looks smart
  • Wears well
  • Contributes to a sense of belonging and community
  • Gives a common purpose
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Fosters a feeling of pride
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind

 

We ask that all children wear the uniform and encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.  The uniform is designed to be practical, maintainable and good value for money.

With effect from the 1st February we will be offering a choice of quality, price and service by providing a ‘dual supply’ of school uniform. At the same time we will be a phased roll out of a new logo across all our uniform. To help us do this, from the above date our suppliers will be:

 

Peter Osborne at www.rjosborne.com/uniforms/holbrook-school/

 

And

 

Zoe Taylor at www.taylormadeuniforms.co.uk

 

Orders can be made in one of two ways:

  1. Online using the links above- these links will be added to the school website
  2. Direct by telephone to either supplier

 

 

Many of you also said that a Wednesday isn’t always convenient for you to get to the second hand uniform sales, so we will also be putting on extra ad hoc second hand uniform sales.

Once again, many thanks for your feedback and your continued support. Should you have any questions please speak to the office.
