We believe that school uniform is an important part of school life and ask all parents and children to do their best to adhere to our dress codes and to appear neat and tidy at all times. Please click on the links below for information on our standards.
Purchasing BG-branded uniform
BG-branded uniform should be purchased from our official supplier, Stitch Design. You can shop online at their website at:
If you wish to purchase 50:50 (cotton:acrylic) knitwear, instead of the standard 100% acrylic, please telephone Stitch Design on 01256 771 999.
Stitch Design also stock non BG-branded uniform for your convenience.
Please label all clothing clearly and permanently using your child’s forename and surname. Where possible, please use sewn-in or iron-on labels.
There is a lost property box outside the main school doors. This is emptied at the end of each half-term. If items are not labelled they will be put into second-hand sales or taken to charity shops.
Friends of Bishop Gilpin (FOBG) organises second-hand uniform sales two or three times a year. Please save any unwanted or outgrown uniform, particularly items with logos, that are in good condition. We can find new homes for them and make money for FOBG at the same time.
If you have any questions or comments, please ask at the school office.
