School Uniform

Uniform is an important part of School life. At Grace Dieu this begins with easy to wear, robust uniforms for our younger years – allowing them to play and move freely.  In the older year groups, children learn when and how to take pride in their appearance and to look smart – which is an important part of preparation for adult life. At the same time, our pupils need clothes for Forest School – suitable ‘kit’ so that they can enjoy all aspects of their outdoor learning (including messing with mud!)

Parents are able to buy School uniform from:

Stevensons
