For a number of years items of school uniform have been sold through the school. We have now decided it will be more efficient and accessible to enable parents to buy uniform and Heathland P.E. kit externally. After the next half-term (from 22nd February 2016) Heathland School uniform will be available from:

                                                 School Bells
                                                 48 Bell Road
                                                 TW3 3PB

School Bells is open late in the evening and on weekends. Parents can, of course, buy the correct colour and style of blazer, trousers, skirts and shirts from other shops if you wish. School ties and all other items which have the school logo can only be purchased from School Bells. During the summer term pupils in Year 9 will need to buy the Heathland Senior (Upper School) Tie. Pupils currently in Year 10 + 11 continue to wear Upper School tie.

May I please ask parents and guardians to refer to the pupil diary or the school website when purchasing uniform.

School uniform and appearance

All pupils are expected to wear their school uniform correctly at all times on their journey to and from school. The school believes that a smart and formal appearance is important in encouraging pupils to take pride in themselves and to strive to maintain high standards in all aspects of school life. If pupils are not in full school uniform they will not be able to attend lessons. Pupils will work in the school’s internal exclusion room (205G) until the correct uniform is worn.

* These items are available to purchase from the school via ParentPay 
until 12am Thursday 11th February 2016
