Dear Parent/Carer,Since converting into the New Bridge Group we have introduced a new logo and school identity. We are keen to develop this sense of identity within school and across our local area. With that in mind we will be introducing a new uniform from September 2022, that we hope your child will be proud to wear. Any new pupils to school will be expected to purchase the new uniform and PE kit from Topmarks Schoolwear, Ashton, see flyer attached.
We would like to make it clear that the only compulsory item to be purchased from Topmarks is the school jumper with the new logo and the PE kit. All other items can be purchased from local supermarkets as we are very keen to keep the cost as affordable as possible. The blazer is NOT compulsory but if your child chooses to wear this, school will provide the iron on badge. Alternatively, the blazer can be purchased from Topmarks with the badge already ironed on. We do not expect current pupils to purchase the new uniform if their existing one already fits them. However, when the uniform is ready to be replaced then we would expect that to be purchased as outlined on the Topmarks flyer. We would ask that footwear is either black shoes or trainers without branding. The compulsory PE kit is a top and either shorts or jog bottoms. You may purchase both shorts and jog bottoms if you wish but this is optional. The PE zip top is NOT compulsory as your child can wear their school jumper instead if the weather is cold. Hoodies and non-uniform sweatshirts are NOT acceptable at any time in school and your child will be asked to remove that item. Again, we would not expect current pupils to purchase the PE kit if their existing plain white T-shirt and black shorts still fits. Any further clarification can be sought from your child’s class teacher. Please note we are not expecting current Y10 pupils who will be Y11 for the academic year 2022-2023 to purchase new uniform.
Uniform may also be purchased from:
