At the Blue Coat School, we are part of a community where the highest levels of excellence are expected by all. This is underpinned by a strong set of beliefs and values which ensure that every pupil is all that they can be and all that they are meant to be. In keeping with our values and beliefs, all pupils are expected to proudly wear the Blue Coat School uniform. We firmly believe that wearing a school uniform enables our young people to feel part of our community and to establish a sense of identity and unity amongst their peers. Wearing the school uniform also assists in the provision of a safe school environment, where all pupils feel a sense of belonging.

Stevensons is a well-established, national company who are working with us to provide the same quality and standards of uniform at an affordable cost.

Stevensons operate mostly online, which should hopefully make ordering uniform more convenient. Uniform sizes are standard but if you do have concerns about sizing, Stevensons have equipped us with a sizing kit, and you can arrange to visit the school to confirm any measurements before ordering if you so wish.

Although primarily an online provider, Stevensons also offer a number of pop-up shop events throughout the year. These will be aimed mostly at our new year 7s joining the school in September with no previous experience of purchasing our uniform. The dates for the 2024 are to be confirmed.

Second hand uniform

If you would like to request items of good condition, second hand uniform, please follow the below link and complete and submit the request form.

There will be no cost for any item of uniform that we are able to provide through the initiative. The initiative is subject to donations, therefore there may be limited availability of certain items depending on the volume of donations received. 

You will be notified via email once we can advise what uniform is available and when it will be ready for collection.

If you have any clean, good condition, outgrown uniform items that you would be prepared to donate, please could you send them into school with your child with name tags / year / house badges removed. We do not have any facilities to wash/dry/iron/repair donated items, therefore we require the clothing to be in a good condition, washed and pressed, to pass on straight away to another family. 

We would like to ask for donations of the following: 

  • Boys blazers 
  • Girls blazers 
  • Girls skirts  
  • PE short sleeved top 
  • PE long sleeved top 
  • PE shorts 
  • Winter school coats 

Please do not send the old-style white PE shirt, plain black polo PE skirt, plain black sweatshirt or black and yellow rugby top, as these are no longer current uniform items.

Unfortunately, due to storage restrictions, we are unable to continue to accept donations of school shirts, blouses and trousers, however we are sure that local charity shops will be pleased to receive those items to help families in the community. 

The collection point for the donations will be outside the hall.
