School Uniform and Equipment

 

School uniforms form the basis of our identity as a school community. Students who know and feel that they belong to a community are always more successful than those who do not.

At Colmers School, students are genuinely proud of their school and wear their ties, badges and lapel pins with immense pride. With care, school uniforms are also a cost effective and economical alternative to the ever changing demands of fashions and fads amongst young people. In a rapidly changing world, school uniforms remain a traditional symbol of high standards and pride in belonging to that school community.
