We will start wearing the new school uniform from September. If any parents are struggling to pay for the new uniform, they should contact Mr Hughes and support may be offered. 

The new uniform is optional for current year 5 pupils.

For the first week back to school next academic year, current school uniform can be brought to school and left in the sheltered area outside the office. We will arrange for this to be distributed to South Africa via the Bambisanani Partnership. This is a unique collaboration developed by St. Mary’s Menston and Mnyakanya High School in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The uniform can be used by school pupils and for children in a local orphanage. If you have any unwanted school dresses, trousers, skirts, shorts, pumps, shoes and trainers in good condition, these can be donated too.

  • Children may not wear jewellery to school. Anyone with pierced ears should wear studs during school time.
  • Make-up or nail varnish is not allowed in school.
  • Long hair should be tied back with either a discreet headband or clips. These should be of a single colour preferable, blue or white, to complement the school uniform.
  • Extreme haircuts are not allowed.
  • Jumpers and Cardigans must have the school logo on.

Children attending St Mary's will be expected to comply with the above guidance.

The Governing Body has a right to determine the school uniform. The Headteacher is charged with enforcement; through the wearing of a standardised uniform brings a sense of pride in the school, self-esteem, personal discipline and personal independence.
