Uniform and PE Kit

The wearing of full Clarendon uniform is an expression of the personal pride that students take in themselves and the school

A student represents their school when in uniform and our reputation depends very much on the impression made. In deciding upon suitable clothing for Clarendon we have taken into account cost, availability, durability and suitability for daily wear to and from school and around the school. We want students prepared for learning. As parents and carers who have chosen to send their children to the school, we anticipate and appreciate your full support with this.

Please help us to ensure that our students – your children – are incredibly smart in the community too. All clothing and belongings should be marked with the owner’s name. The school is not liable for loss of personal items.
