School uniform

Before moving into our new building a competition was held to design a new school logo. The new logo shows the castle in Hay and an open book as the town is famous for its many bookshops.


We encourage all children to wear school uniform


Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name.


Boys and Girls:
Blue sweatshirt with school badge
Blue short sleeved polo shirt with school badge or white short sleeved polo shirt
Black or grey trousers, skirt or pinafore dress
As above with the addition of blue checked or striped dresses
White cotton T-shirt and black shorts to be kept in a bag on your child’s peg


All school uniform can be bought from Tesco Uniform Service.
