Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School


The Sele School uniform is currently in transition; after consultation with students it was agreed to change the uniform with effect from the start of the Autumn Term 2017. While the previous uniform was smart, students felt that they would like to move to a brighter look with the school's maroon colour featuring in the new blazer and with an updated look for the tie and the school badge.

Students who joined Year 7 in September all wear the new uniform. Students in current Years 7, 8 and 9 can choose to continue with the old uniform or can change to the new uniform immediately. Students currently in Year 10 will retain the old uniform without exception. 

It is appreciated that this will result in a short period during which some students will be wearing the new and some wearing the old uniform; the same high standards of dress as usual will be expected in both cases. The Sele School is justifiably proud of the smart appearance of our students; views on consultation were that the new uniform will further enhance the image of the school. 

Please note that items cannot be 'mixed and matched' between the new and old uniforms; students must either wear items that are all from either the new or the old uniform. Full details of uniform items in both styles can be found below, however if you are in any doubt about the purchase of uniform items please contact the school beforehand to check.
