School uniform is ordered via School Blazer, a specialist uniform supplier. You will need to open an account and set up details for your child, including their measurements, so that you can easily order the right size.
We strongly recommend that you order uniform in good time if you wish to try it on before your child departs for school. Alternatively, you can arrange for uniform to be named and delivered straight to school. You will need to ensure your child's name, their House (if in Senior School) and the school address is included in the Delivery Address information. If items of uniform need to be exchanged, House staff can assist with this.
Sport items such as shin guards, hockey sticks, tennis rackets etc can be purchased at any sports retailer.
Clayesmore has recently introduced a new school uniform which has been happily embraced by our pupils throughout the school. The new uniform will be fully adopted through the school in the 2022/23 academic year.
Prep and Senior pupils have a very closely aligned uniform, making it easy for Year 8s to transition to Year 9 without having to purchase too many additional items - unless new sizes are required. Pupils are required to have a blazer (and tie for boys) for our "Sunday Best" events, where full, formal uniform is required to be worn.
The uniform is purchased via the SchoolBlazer website, who are also able to include name tags on all clothing items and can deliver to your home or school for boarders. New families will receive information about this when they join.
Sixth Form students have a dress code to which to adhere. They are required to have a navy "Sunday Best" suit for formal occasions. This can consists of trousers or a skirt, a jacket and white shirt. This suit must be purchased via the School Blazer website. For everyday wear, students are able to wear a business-style navy or dark grey suit of their choosing, with a navy jumper in colder weather, and conservative business style shirt. Shoes should be comfortable black leather.
The school does not operate a second hand uniform shop, but parents often seek to sell uniform when children have outgrown it and this is best monitored via the year group What's App feeds and Facebook forums.
We operate a gender flexible uniform policy at school and do not force children to wear gender specific items - we are happy to discuss options with you if you feel your child would prefer to have a different choice within the range of uniform on offer.
