School Uniform

We are very proud of the way our students wear their uniforms and represent our school by doing so in the local community.

There is a different uniform for Years 7 to 9 and years 10 to 11. Sixth form students have a smart/formal dress code.

Required items of uniform and PE kit with the Bishop Stopford School logo are available through KS Schoolwear as detailed below.  Parents may choose to buy items which are non-school specific such as trousers, skirts, shirts, and blouses from any retailer or these may also be purchased through KS Schoolwear, if required.  Families are encouraged to consider purchasing second hand items: our School holds a good range of second hand items for purchase.
