Please see details of the school uniform and how to purchase  here. As you may be aware we operate a “House” system within the Piggott School. The sweatshirts have different coloured logos to represent the Houses. Parents will have received a letter informing them of the House that they will join so that the correct colour can be purchased. Please see the below leaflets on current arrangments to buy uniform from our suppliers Stevensons and Different Class (PE kit)


You will find a list of recommended equipment in the information booklet and letters sent to you in the post.
