School Uniform

Spa N.S. has always valued the importance of its school uniform. It enhances every child’s association with the school and provides our students with a strong sense of identity and belonging.

Following a review in 2018, it has been decided that for the 2018/19 school year

  • Every student attending Spa N.S. can wear the complete formal school uniform or the complete school tracksuit option or both depending on the pupil’s and parent’s preference.
  • The school authorities will not allocate days for the wearing of the formal and tracksuit options, but will allow the parents to make this decision provided a few basic guidelines are adhered to and respected. These guidelines are listed on the next page.

Dark Navy trousers /pinafore skirt
