All pupils are expected to wear school uniform until they enter the Sixth Form. Our aim is to set a standard of dress and appearance which we feel is appropriate and acceptable for the school environment. The uniform is sensible, helps pupils feel that they belong to the school and it is not difficult for parents to obtain the correct garments. We expect that all parents will send their children to school in the appropriate uniform and support us in maintaining high standards of appearance throughout their child’s time at Egglescliffe.
