All about Uniform
At Bournside we expect the highest standards from our students, starting with their personal presentation. Our uniform gives our school its identity and we expect our students to wear it with pride at all times. To maintain these standards, the Uniform and Equipment Guidance outlines our expectations to ensure that our students feel part of our community, are ready to learn, and make the best impression to everyone they meet.
Please visit the tabs for detailed information specific to our two uniform suppliers, Schooltogs and Universal Uniform.
Over the last two months we have worked tirelessly to overhaul our operational procedures to enable our teams to return to work safely. We know this Back to School will be very challenging and we are focused on delivering parent and student safety while ensuring we service everyone.
We have made our stores Covid-19 Secure and plan to reopen the Cheltenham store on Monday, 22nd June using a new personalised booking system for new starters which will go live on our website from Friday, 5th June.
We are delighted to be able to tell you that after a period of lock down, our online shop is now open and orders are being processed once again. We have been using the period of closure to plan ahead for the back-to-school season so that we can make what will be a very different experience for everyone, as hassle free as possible.
It is our priority this year to ensure that we adhere to government guidelines, keeping both staff and customers safe during the back to school shopping season, whilst still providing the outstanding service that we pride ourselves on. We are confident that our systems are well placed to deal with the shift to predominantly online sales. We will continue to the review the situation and will reopen the shop, if and when government guidelines allow, on an appointment only basis.
There is a possibility that the pandemic will have negatively impacted the supply chain in our industry so we would strongly advise that parents shop early this year to avoid delays in acquiring their uniform nearer to September.
Our House system
We have high expectations for learning and for behaviour. We want you to try your hardest in lessons and we’ll reward you through our house points system for outstanding attitude to learning, as well as great attendance, joining in, supporting others, and your achievements in and outside of school. In your daily tutor sessions you’ll be with fellow house members from other year groups so you will soon feel part of our school community.
On joining us, you will be presented with your school tie which will represent your house.
