It is expected that school uniform be worn correctly and with pride

Students may wear to and from school, jackets/raincoats/tracksuits to keep warm and dry. These do not need to be school uniform - however; once at school; all such clothing MUST be removed as only school uniform is permitted in and around our buildings. All items are summer and winter uniform. These can be worn at anytime during the school year. The aim of this policy is to allow students to wear their uniform to their needs to suit the weather conditions - it is also a cost saving method for families. Please clearly name all items of uniform.

Lost property is found outside Room 4 in a container.

Cambridge Middle School Uniforms can be purchased from:

The Warehouse, 124 Wilson St, Cambridge

If the item you require is not available at The Warehouse please go to the customer service counter and order the items you require. Please phone the school if you are having difficulty sourcing the uniform you need.



Footwear can either be Roman leather sandals (blue, brown or black) or black lace up shoes. The shoes are to be able to take shoe polish (not material). If wearing shoes, girls are to wear white knee length socks or navy, opaque or black tights and boys are to wear navy blue, woollen, knee length socks. Both sandals and shoes can be worn either summer or winter.
