We are very proud of our school uniform. It is important that children wear the correct uniform to school as it gives a sense of belonging, fosters school spirit and makes children feel they fit in.
Complying with the school uniform is one of the minimum behaviours set out in our expectations when parents enrol their children at Old Bexley. Please ensure ALL uniform items are clearly marked with your child's name.
Our school uniform can be purchased from J K Clothing in Blackfen:
