Croesyceiliog School understands the links between high standards of appearance and self-esteem. We know that success in all of its forms comes when an individual has good self-esteem and takes pride in their appearance. We believe that our uniform guidance is clear and unambiguous and we encourage all families buying new uniform, including coats and shoes, to consult the uniform list prior to making any purchases.

We are sure that all pupils, parent/carers will continue to support the school’s uniform requirements. The key word for our uniform is “smart”; we ask that all of our pupils take pride in their appearance and respect the requirements listed above. As a school, we understand the importance of our reputation in the community and therefore we ask that pupils where their uniform with pride when travelling to and from school as well as throughout the school day, including wearing smart coats and shoes.

Overall, we are delighted that our pupils do come to school in excellent uniform and we know that all parents/carers and pupils will ensure that these high standards are maintained in the future.

We welcome any enquiries regarding uniform. Please contact your child’s Pastoral Support Officer or Head of Year.
