If there is any doubt about whether a particular item is acceptable parents should check with the school before purchasing. The school reserves the right to ban certain unforeseen items that may come in as fads or fashion items eg leg warmers and therefore aren’t specifically stated in our uniform code.
School uniform can be ordered online via Parentmail. We will contact you when your order is ready to be collected from the school office.
We emphasise that St. Matthew’s School is an equal opportunities school and that uniform lists are split in terms of gender purely for ease of reference.
