In order to ensure uniformity throughout the school, certain items of clothing and sports kit are only available from our suppliers. There are additional items of essential clothing that can be purchased from our suppliers but may also be purchased from other shops. Boys may not wear their own sports clothing in school.
A number of items of uniform are only available from our two designated suppliers.

Naming of clothes
It is vital that all items of clothing should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.
Every new pupil will need a calculator. We recommend either a Casio FX83GT+ (battery powered) or a Casio FX85GT+ (solar powered). Since every boy in the Shells will have such a calculator, it is vital that your son puts his name on it clearly and indelibly.
Your son will need a padlock with two keys so that he can lock his locker. At the beginning of term, your son should put a spare key in an envelope with his name on it and give it to his Form Tutor so that we can access his locker if he loses his key.
