We are aware that some families are experiencing delays in the arrival of their school uniform order and would like to apologise for any stress and anxiety this is causing. We are working with Price and Buckland on expediting the process for you, however due to their own supplier issues it is possible that some families may not receive their order in time for the start of term. We appreciate the impact of this on our families and on students, especially those who will be joining us for the first time so have made the decision to allow the wearing of non-branded uniform until your uniform order arrives.

Many of the main supermarkets and high street retailers offer affordable non-branded school uniform items. Please can we ask that you purchase items that are in the school colours as detailed on the attached uniform list Please note we do allow students to wear navy trousers instead of a skirt for school.

Some useful sites could be:

ASDA school uniform

M&S school uniform

We hope that this offers you some reassurance and we are currently looking at further options to support you. More details will follow shortly.

We again apologise for the delays and anxiety this may be causing your family.

 

Update 24/08/2020:

We have received some queries following our notice to parents and carers last week and would like to apologise if what was intended to offer reassurance has caused further anxiety for families at this time. We are very aware of the many challenges caused by the pandemic and our aim, as always, is to offer support. We are hoping that families will have their uniform orders fulfilled and students will be able to attend St Laurence from the start of term in their school uniform. However, if your order has not been fulfilled, the following options are available for families:

  1. Wear unbranded items of uniform instead of branded items. Once your uniform order arrives, you can choose whether to continue wearing your unbranded items or whether to replace them with the items in your order
  2. Wear school PE kit (all students will be wearing PE kit, all day, on days where they have practical PE or Dance lessons so students would not need to worry about this seeming unusual)
  3. Check the SLSA second hand uniform Facebook page to see what uniform is available https://www.facebook.com/groups/159323391309161/?ref=share
  4. If you have any second-hand uniform which you no longer require could you please use the Facebook link above to donate or sell to other parents who are missing items.

If you are still faced with difficulties in acquiring appropriate uniform, we will do our best to help you. Please contact studentreception@st-luarence.com

Our students have achieved an excellent set of GCSE results. Amid all the controversy which has raged nationally, we are confident that these are the grades which our students thoroughly deserve, based on their hard work throughout their courses.

We are very proud of the 22 students who have achieved 8 or more subjects at Grade 7 or above (equivalent to the old A grade) and are equally proud of all those students who achieved well across the grade range and have made such good progress during their time at St Laurence. In this immensely challenging year, we are delighted that they have received due recognition for their efforts and persistence.

Many congratulations to the year 11 Class of 2020, who have worked really hard, with the support of their teachers and families. We look forward to welcoming many of them into our sixth form shortly, to continue the next phase of their education and send those going on to college or other settings our very best wishes.

We are immensely proud of all our students and their A level achievements. They worked very hard for their grades and fully deserve great credit. Despite all the national arguments about methodologies, it is essential that we all acknowledge, applaud and affirm what our students have achieved.

They have done really well across the range of grades and the results overall are in line with those achieved in recent years. Particular congratulations are due to the 23 students who swept the board with A* or A grades in all their subjects!

Many congratulations Class of 2020! Your teachers, who have also worked so hard to support you, are incredibly proud of you and we all wish you every success in the next stage of your journeys at university, apprenticeships or work.
