The school uniform is simple, comfortable and smart, establishing a professional atmosphere and a sense of belonging within the school without distracting from the main focus of teaching and learning. Burford Uniform – Years 7-11
Students are expected to wear the uniform correctly with shirt sleeves rolled down, top button and tie done up; and skirts at knee length. The school reserves the right to remove students from mainstream classes who do not wear their uniform in the correct manner, and to inform parents immediately. Support from parents in ensuring that uniform is correctly worn is essential in helping to establish a sense of responsibility and professionalism in each student.
Summer Uniform is worn in Term 6. Students can choose to wear a white polo shirt bearing the school logo instead of the winter long sleeved shirt, tie and blazer.
All of our set uniform, such as skirts and trousers for girls and those items with the school logo, are supplied by Wreal Sports (formerly Giles Sports in Carterton.) If these items are purchased elsewhere they must have the school logo embroidered onto them and the skirts and trousers must be of the specified styles. An embroidery service is provided by Wreal Sports for those who purchase items from other outlets. Non-specific items of clothing can also be bought from Wreal Sports or from any other retailer. If in doubt, please contact the school prior to purchasing items. Ties, which denote each student’s School House, and blazer badges are available from the Finance Office.
Mrs Sanderson, our Home-School Link Worker, firstname.lastname@example.org, has a selection of second-hand uniform available for purchase. Please contact her directly to view available items.
The labelling of items of clothing and sports kit is essential. If, however, things do go missing please contact Mrs Marshall – email@example.com – in the School Office.

In the Sixth Form students are no longer required to wear uniform. They are expected to be presentable and smart in their appearance. Jeans and hoodies are not permitted except on days when money is being raised for charity. There is a Sixth Form Dress Code which all students are required to follow.
