At Holy Rosary Catholic Primary Academy, we believe that school uniform plays a vital role in underpinning a sense of community amongst our school family. All children are expected to wear a school uniform.

All items should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Second-hand Uniform

School also provides an affordable option to parents by selling second-hand uniform items. There are regular events throughout the year where uniform is sold and we encourage parents of children that leave Holy Rosary to return school-specific items to use for resale. Parents can also request a second-hand uniform item by contacting our office, who will check the stock we have available.
