Uniform

At Valley Park, we believe that excellent uniform is part of setting high academic standards.

As a result, students will be expected to adhere to our uniform requirements at all times. This means that uniform must be worn correctly both in and out of school. All items of uniform are available from our suppliers, Pages Schoolwear and Monkhouse.

A full list of uniform can be found in the table below, with more detailed information in the pop-out sections at the bottom of the page. 

This list was reviewed in September 2022 to reflect new legislation around school uniform affordability. A number of items which previously had to be purchased through our school uniform suppliers can now be purchased at any retailer.

Please note, also, that some items which were previously compulsory have now been made optional. If you wish to discuss any aspect of school uniform, please contact the school office.

Should you be experiencing financial difficulties and require support with the purchase of uniform or wish to enquire about our second hand uniform please see the page section below or contact the school office.
