Please note that leather pumps do not count as shoes and staff in shoe-shops do not decide what is or what is not acceptable. If you are unsure as to whether your choice meets the school's policy please check our guidance carefully. Anything that looks like pumps or trainers may not be permitted.


Trainers are only allowed for PE, playtimes and any sporting activities.

These are available from Laser on County Rd. We may have limited stock of nearly new coats available. Please contract school directly if you would like to purchase one of these from us.
