The CVC Uniform

We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity, pride and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable. We rely on parents to ensure that pupils arrive in school in correct uniform and may implement sanctions if a pupil does not comply.

All items can be purchased from our suppliers School Uniform Specialists and Essential Schoolwear.

To place an order with School Uniform Specialists please use the code COM902 at the following link 

Please note that skirts and trousers should now be purchased from our school suppliers.
