Uniform

The S. Anselm’s uniform is a central part of our school’s culture and we encourage all pupils to take pride in their appearance and value the sense of identity that their uniform provides.

Uniform lists for all parts of the school are available to download from the links in the right hand margin of this page.

The Prep School and Pre-Prep have Summer and Winter variations to the children’s uniform, which are worn as follows.
