We have high expectations of all our students, and we provide them with clear guidelines to follow. All students up to Year 11 must wear the appropriate school uniform.
As part of the latest Department for Education guidance, schools have a legal duty to ensure the cost of uniform does not become excessive and consider cost when implementing their uniform policy. Government have asked schools to minimise logo'd uniform to allow parents to shop at different suppliers and get the best value for money.
With this in mind, we are changing some aspects of our uniform with effect from September 2023 and both our current and new Uniform Policies can be found at the bottom of this page. The new policy will apply to all our new Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 7 starters in September 2023, but will be phased in for all other year groups. Further details are below.
Years 1-6 and Years 8-11 2023-24 onwards
We do not expect students already attending our school, or new students joining as in-year students, to purchase items under the new uniform policy. We expect the vast majority of our existing students will continue to wear current uniform until it needs to be replaced. Please find below the uniform requirements for each phase under the current policy, a copy of which can also be found at the bottom of this page:
As mentioned above, as items need to be replenished, parents may then choose to purchase them under the new policy, further details of which are below.
EYFS & Year 7 2023-24 only
All students joining our Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 7 in September 2023 will need to purchase items as per the new uniform policy.

The money raised from uniform sales is used to purchase equipment and fund activities to enrich the students learning experience, and we thank you for supporting CCS Friends and raising funds for our school.
- For Primary Uniform orders, your order will be sent home with your child.
- For Secondary Uniform orders, you will need to collect from a CCS Friends representative's home address, as we are unable to manage this through school in the current climate.
To support CCS Friends further we are asking that our customers absorb the cost of web hosting and banking fees. This helps us secure the donations you very generously make, and not have to incur fees that would impact our fundraising efforts.
Donations: If you have any good condition logo'd uniform that you no longer need, we are grateful for donations to be able to re-sell. If you have any items you would like to donate, please email CCSFriends@protonmail.com to organise.
Whilst we make every endeavour to check the quality prior to sale, all uniform is second hand. We understand that, in some instances, it may not be to a standard you expect. In the very rare case that this may occur, we will work to find a solution. In the event of providing a refund, we are only able to refund the cost of the item and not the web platform and banking fees, as we incur those charges regardless.
