The St John’s uniform is an essential part of the ethos of the school. Our smart, comfortable uniform should instil in our students a sense of pride in their personal appearance and also in representing St John’s.
Our school uniform is provided by School Colours and is only available to purchase online through this website (see sidebar links).

PERSISTENT BREACHES OF THE UNIFORM REGULATIONS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND WILL BE TREATED AS DEFIANT BEHAVIOUR.
All students are issued with a uniform card. If the uniform worn does not meet the ‘Acceptable’ description above, a member of staff will ask to see the uniform card and sign it. If a student persists in wearing incorrect uniform, then sanctions will be put in place in line with the St John’s behaviour policy. For a great number of students this will never need to be used and reward points will be issued for a ‘clean sheet’. Students must always have their uniform card with them at St John’s.

Labelling Sports Kit
Please ensure that all sports kit is marked with the owner’s name. The kit is to be labelled on the outside of the garment for easy identification and to reduce the risk of theft.
The diagrams below indicate where the kit is to be labelled and labels can be purchased from www.easy2name.com. Please ensure that both sides of the rugby top are labelled.
The required labels are the One Inch ID Tag Labels – Navy Blue Background with Gold Metallic Letters as detailed below. The labels are to be stitched on the opposite side to the St John’s logo. An order form may be found in the Uniform policy PDF.
Care and marking of property
Having provided your child with expensive items of clothing and equipment, please make sure that he/she takes good care of them.
Each item of clothing and property should be clearly and indelibly marked. Unless this is done we cannot help to find lost belongings. Name tapes which are sewn into clothes last longer than adhesive ones.
Make sure that your child realises the importance of thorough searching and quick reporting if any item is lost. Carelessness is responsible for far more loss than dishonesty and sometimes unmarked, quite valuable property (eg a watch), goes unclaimed because no one bothers to ask for it.
Lost Property – all items both named and unnamed, including items of sports kit will be available in the Atrium each Monday and Friday from 09:30 – 14:30. Unclaimed unnamed items of lost property will be disposed of at the end of the summer term or possibly each term if the storage space available is exceeded. The school can accept no responsibility for property lost on school premises.
