Here at James Calvert Spence College, we are proud of our uniform. We strongly believe that school uniform is important for effective learning and teaching. Wearing a uniform instils pride in the students and the wider community. It also encourages identity with, and support for, our school ethos and supports positive behaviour.
Having a school uniform and general appearance code protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way. It nurtures cohesion, and helps to promote good relations between different groups of students.
We would like to thank all parents and carers for your help in maintaining JCSC’s uniform standards and ask for your support in achieving consistency throughout the school.
You can purchase uniform that must have the school embroidered logo on from our chosen suppliers:
Total Sport (totalsport.co.uk)
Some items that appear in the schoolwear sections of shops do not meet our uniform expectations. With this in mind, you will find examples of footwear, trousers and skirts that meet JCSC uniform standards on this page. You should direct any uniform queries to your child’s pastoral officer, prospective students and those transitioning to the school should contact Mr McCudden, Assistant Headteacher – Ethos & Culture.
Please note that sizing can vary between suppliers, so we advise looking a the sizing guides:

The school reserves the right to decide whether the general appearance of any student is appropriate for school. We would like to thank all parents and carers for your support in maintaining consistent standards.
The above guidelines are available in our JCSC uniform guide, which you can save to keep or print.
