All students are expected to know the full School Uniform Rules and must keep to them.
School uniform is worn by years 7–11 and is one of the ways students can contribute to the reputation of the school. We expect all students to practise good personal responsibility by wearing uniform correctly so they represent the school in a positive way.
The Cardinal Newman sweater and polo shirt are compulsory, with a different colour for each year group, and are available from Sussex Uniforms, Hove. These are worn with black trousers (boys) or black trousers or school skirts (girls). The PE kit comprises readily available items, apart from the special red games shirt with a black hoop (boys and girls) and students in Key Stage 3 should wear the Cardinal Newman T-shirt.
The uniform, provided by Sussex Uniforms from their shop in Blatchington Road, represents very good quality and value as the polo shirts and jumpers remain in good condition for the year and we are always proud that our students look as good in July as they did the previous autumn.
You can purchase the uniform via the Sussex Uniforms website:
We also work with Smarter Uniforms to facilitate the re-use of our school uniform. Smarter Uniforms is a social enterprise that recycles school uniforms across Brighton & Hove. The goal is to save parents money, redirect uniforms away from landfill and protect our planet’s precious resources, whilst raising money for the school and providing parents with a lower cost way to buy uniform. Pre-loved uniform is available to purchase from The FAIR Shop, Queens Road, Brighton, 21 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3AX Tel:01273 723215
