Here at Bowerham we believe that it’s important that we look smart and dress appropriately for school. Please find below a list of our school uniform and information on how to order certain items.

The uniform is:

  • Plain black tracksuit bottoms / leggings / skort or athletic shorts (no logos).
  • White Polo Shirt.
  • School jumper.
  • Hairbands / scrunchies / bobbles and clips are to be plain red or black – no jojo bows.  Children’s hairstyles should be appropriate for school – no designs or lines shaved into very short haircuts and children with hair longer than shoulder length must have their hair tied back. Children with long fringes must be clipped back off their face.
  • Socks to be plain black, grey or white (no logos)
  • Plain black trainers (no logos).


  • A small plain silver or gold stud earring can be worn but MUST BE removed on your child’s P.E. days.
  • Parents are requested to have their children’s ear pierced at beginning of the summer holiday so that they have healed for the start of the new school year.

For religious convictions ONLY:

  • A plain headscarf in black or red only.

The P.E kit consists of:

  • Plain black athletic shorts /skort / tracksuit bottoms or running trousers.
  • School team colour t-shirt.
  • School jumper.
  • Plain black trainers (no logos).

Dress Down or Up Friday:

  • The top half of your clothing has to be school uniform – this means you should wear what you would wear what you would wear to school Monday – Thursday.
  • You must wear suitable footwear (i.e. not high heels).
  • Don’t come in unsuitable clothing (i.e. don’t come in shorts if it is cold).
  • You don’t need to come dressed down or up if you don’t want to.


As a celebration of their special day, the children are allowed to wear what they choose to school that day. If their birthday falls at weekend or in the school holidays they can choose a day of their choice. Please do join us in wishing them Happy Birthday if you see them.


We have a selection of polo shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies in various colours which come embroidered with the Bowerham Bear Logo.

School Uniform Shop

From September 24 we will no longer be the main supplier for our school uniform. Our main stockist will be The Uniform & Liesurewear shop on Common Garden Street or via their website. School will only hold minimal stock. You will still be able to order personalised items through school for the foreseeable future.

Uniform Project

Last year, the Uniform Project provided over 800 uniforms to local families.   We are aiming to continue to provide support to families in the local area in an easy and accessible way throughout this year.
Parents, carers, and guardians are able to make a referral, as well as yourselves at schools.  The referrals are packed up by our team of volunteers and delivered to home addresses during the summer months.
We will provide a school pack which will contain 2 trousers or skirts, 2 polos or shirts and a logo item (where available) .  We will also try to provide summer uniforms like dresses or shorts and each pack will have a toothbrush, toothpaste and sunscreen.   There may be additional items such as sanitary products, underwear and stationery included in the packs.

If you have any questions about the Uniform Project or about referring families for food support, please don’t hesitate to contact them.
Pass It On Shop

School runs a pass it on shop which has second hand uniform and other useful items such as winter coats. Any family or member of our local community can donate items. The rails of items are available outside our nursery for families to take items and place a donation in the honesty box if they are in a position to.
