School Uniform

The school uniform consists of :

(a) V-neck school crested jumper for all students
(b) Grey skirt or trousers for girls
Grey trousers for boys
(c) School tie with grey shirt or school polo shirt available from Kaideen & Co.
(d) Grey socks and plain soled flat black leather shoes without visible logos (no runners or canvas, they don’t keep feet dry on wet days.)
For official school functions, all students must wear the shirt and tie.


(i) The official school uniform is now available from two suppliers, 1. Kaideen & Co. Ltd it can be ordered online at or on dates when that supplier will be in the school. (You will be notified by text of these dates) 2. Savvy Schools, Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Woodview Grove, Clonsilla.
No other style of trousers/skirt is acceptable.

(ii) Boots, runners, thick-soled platform shoes, high block heel, sling backs, slipper-type etc. are not suitable.
(iii) All students must have a change of uniform. The cost of the uniform is very reasonable.
(iv) Students are always informed if the uniform is not required for a particular outing or event otherwise the assumption is that the correct and complete uniform must be worn at all times.

Raingear (for our Irish climate!) is essential to protect clothes on the way to and from school. The school jacket is a black fleece-lined crested jacket of very good quality. The jacket is compulsory for all students and is on sale through the school at a cost of €55.

It is the only jacket students may wear to school. Hoodies are not allowed.

The mobile shop unit will be in the school on the following dates: Mon. 11th Aug. 3pm -5pm, Mon. 18th Aug. 4pm – 6pm, Mon. 25th Aug. 4pm – 5pm. Uniforms can also be ordered on those days.

(v) Students are requested not to wear expensive jewellery to school. Students are allowed one ring on each hand, small earrings or stud in the ear.
No other studs, jewellery or appendages are allowed.

We would like to thank parents and students for the excellent manner in which our students maintain and wear the uniform to school.
