Rationale for School Uniform

If all students wear a clearly recognisable uniform, it is easy to identify strangers. On the way to and from school it also affords a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people who will look out for each other.

Ready to Work

Putting on uniform is a signal you are going to work hard and learn.

Raising Aspirations

Students have told us that if they look smart they will have more self-belief and achieve more.

A Sense of Pride

Uniform and team kits help our students to demonstrate pride in their school.

Preparation for the Future

Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform or there is often a dress code. Uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard and know the difference between formal and informal dress.

Relieves Students from Fashion Stress

Uniform eliminates the stress placed on students to purchase and wear expensive, fashionable items.

Value for Money

Uniform is a relatively inexpensive way of dressing young people for school.

Swap Shop


We offer a Uniform Swap Shop service. We want to provide parents with the opportunity to swap worn out, outgrown uniform for donated uniform items by other Gateacre School families for a small donation to the PTFA.

If you have any uniform items you wish to donate, please drop them off to our school reception.

The Swap Shop is available in our reception area each day.
