School Uniform

The Blake School is a flourishing community of unique individuals, the wearing of a school uniform is an external expression of the single community to which all belong equally. As part of belonging to The Blake School community, children are expected to wear their uniform and take pride in their personal appearance.  Children attending The Blake School should be considered smart, well presented, and therefore ready for learning.

Parents are only required to purchase branded sweatshirts/cardigans from our uniform supplier, all other items can be purchased from high street stores.

The school colours are red and grey.
Sweatshirts, cardigans, P.E. T-shirts and a range of other items with the school logo may be ordered online from Please search for ‘The Blake School’.
Miscellaneous items:
Coats should be appropriate for school wear
An appropriate cap or hat, to cover the back of the neck in hot weather, is strongly recommended
Regarding other items of clothing in school, we would ask you to be guided by the following two principles:
1. Does it fit in with the rest of the uniform?
2. Is it safe?
We strongly recommend that no jewellery should be worn to school. If your child wears small studs for pierced ears, please make sure she/he can remove the studs independently for PE and for swimming.
