Where do I buy DHFS school uniform?

Latest information regarding supply of School Uniform:

The current position is however that the school uniform is due to be all in stock and available as from end of July. We have the main Boys and Girls Blazer order due into us during the 2nd half of July. We are all unsure as to what exactly will happen at the beginning of September but we are stating that 2nd August is the last day for parents to place an order to ensure delivery for the start of term.


Non-compliance of our uniform policy

All students who are not in full uniform must bring a letter from home explaining why they are not able to wear full uniform and for how long the situation will last. Letters from parents must be shown to their mentor and then presented at student services where a red 'non-compliance' slip will be issued if we feel there is a genuine reason or issue.

All unauthorised instances of incorrect uniform and appearance will lead to a one-hour after school uniform detention (Wednesday 3:30pm - 4:30pm). Three uniform detentions in an academic year will result in a Headteacher's Detention.

The possible level of sanction for not conforming to the uniform and appearance policy may include:
