Uniform Letter March 2024

Dear parent/carer, 

As a school we ask for your support to ensure all students are prepared and proudly wearing the correct uniform every day. 

The essential uniform items that all pupils need: 

  • Plain black school trousers or a plain black school skirt (no denim, jogging bottoms, leather, combats, cargos, cords or shorts. Skirts must be knee length or longer). 
  • Plain white school shirt (not polo shirt)
  • Plain unbranded black school shoes or plimsolls (no trainers)
  • The school blazer 
  • The school tie 
  • School PE kit 

Students can wear the additional  items on the list below. These are optional and are not compulsory for any pupil.

  • School  jumper (no other jumpers are allowed and no hoodies)
  • A warm, waterproof coat (no denim or leather and no hoodies) 
  • Headscarves, hijabs, durags or other forms of religious and cultural head coverings must be plain black, navy or white. 

The school blazer, tie, PE kit and optional school jumper can be purchased from YC Sports on Crwys Road (https://www.ycsports.com/School-uniform/My-School/Cathays_High_School). All other items are available from a range of affordable high street shops and supermarkets.

With the environment and cost-of-living in mind, we also have a small stock of high quality pre-worn blazers at the school.  We always welcome donations for this scheme so please consider donating your child’s outgrown uniform or PE kit to us if you think it may be of use to someone else. Please speak to your child’s Head of Year if you are interested in this.

A Welsh Government grant is available for those who need support to purchase essential school items. This can be claimed once per year per pupil. Your child’s Head of Year is available to help any families who need additional support to access this grant. Paper forms are available from the school reception or you can apply online using this link. https://www.cardiff.gov.uk/ENG/resident/Schools-and-learning/Financial-support/School-Essentials-Grant/Pages/default.aspx

Yours faithfully,

Natasha Jones Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion & Wellbeing
