Uniform Code iconUniform Code

The wearing of school uniform at Britannica is compulsory. School uniform encourages a sense of unity and common purpose; a particularly important consideration as we endeavour to welcome students from a wide variety of countries and provide them with a true sense of belonging.

The colours of the school uniform are navy blue and white. 

Summer uniform should be worn from Easter to the October half-term holiday and the Winter uniform from the October half-term holiday to Easter.


Uniform Update

We are delighted to confirm that from the 1st of August 2021, our new uniform provider will be Trutex, who are currently setting up the web shop for our school, details of which will be shared as soon as available in June. 

All items of school uniform ordered from our previous supplier will remain acceptable as part of our uniform code in the 2021-22 academic year. 

Moving to Trutex means we are using a very eco-friendly supplier, and they have warehouses in the EU, from which our uniform will be transported, rather than from the UK, thus eliminating the issues around import costs, post Britain leaving the EU. 

There will also be an enhanced choice of Britannica products, which we will share more information about once the web shop is up and running.
