At Thomas Hall School, we believe our uniform gives our students a sense of identity and pride in our school. Since we are an all through school, we have two uniforms to differentiate between Primary and Secondary.

In the lead up to joining Reach South Academy Trust, Pupils and Staff provided feedback on their views regarding uniform and in response we have developed the below options that will be available from Thomas Moore from Tuesday 30th May.

Please note, that we will have a gradual phasing in of the new uniform. Pupils can choose to wear their previous Avanti Uniform up until the end of the summer term 2024; but we will then expect every pupil to be in the new Thomas Hall uniform by September 2024.

Primary PE Kit will continue to consist of:

  • White polo or t-shirt
  • Black shorts
  • Trainers
