Amherst School

Amherst School


The wearing of correct uniform is one way in which the school promotes its sense of community and high standards of self-discipline and tidiness. Children are expected to take pride in their appearance and to look after their clothing and possessions.

Some items of the uniform can be purchased from  but most are standard purchases that can be made in any high street store. Second-hand uniform sales are run by the Parent Teacher Association.

Cold/Wet Weather Clothing

Style of coats for cold and wet weather is at parent’s discretion, but we request that coats are coloured blue, navy or black. In extreme weather children may wear long trousers on their journeys to and from school and in the playground but must wear correct uniform in school.

All clothing must be clearly labelled.
