School uniform details

Sackville School Uniform – years 7-11

Sackville students are very proud of their uniform which helps to develop their sense of pride and belonging at school. We want to support them in this, as I am sure you do and wish to see it worn correctly. We are grateful to all of our parents who provide full support in maintaining the high standards of our uniform. The advice and pictures below should make it easier for you to be confident you are buying your child the correct items to wear during their school day. Please don’t hesitate to send a query should you be unsure if an item is suitable.

All the items on the link below can be purchased from Phillips Man’s school shop located on the school site or bought online from here.

PE Kit

Our PE kit has been specially redesigned for the September 2019 intake. The most important change is in the sports tops, which are no longer specific to a particular form group. 

Students in year 8 and above can continue to wear their existing kit. If this is getting too small, there are limited stocks of the old kit still on sale in the school uniform shop, at a discounted price. It no longer matters what colour the students wear.

The new kit has turned out more expensive than we hoped, and we are looking to reduce costs for future years. If there is a year’s life left in an old top, keep it running. It is also worth noting that the cheaper unisex PE top can be worn by girls as well as boys.

Much of the kit can be purchased at any sports shop. Items marked * are available from the school shop. Items marked ** are available only from the school shop.
