Uniform & Equipment

The college uniform is important to us and our students wear the Saint Ambrose crest with pride.  We ask for parental co-operation in ensuring the smart appearance of students and the adherence to a uniform policy. The College will be mindful of its Public Sector Equality Duty and will not discriminate against an individual and their protected characteristics when applying the uniform policy fairly and consistently.

Please ensure all items are clearly labelled with your child's name.
