If you only require School ties and blazer badges these can be bought from our online shop.  Your child will be able to collect the items on their first day in school in the Autumn Term. Alternatively, if your child attends Thomas Alleyne’s or has a sibling here they can collect ties and badges from the Student Support Assistants after showing a receipt to them.

As you are aware we have a straightforward, smart school uniform. Not infrequently visitors to the school comment on how smart our students look. We expect our students to wear their uniform with pride
