At St John's, we believe in having a school uniform as it can support positive behaviour and discipline; it can encourage identity with, and support the ethos of the school, and helps nurture cohesion between different groups of pupils. 

Items embroidered with the school logo can be purchased from PMG Schoolwear via their website from May 2022 onwards.
