School Uniform

We encourage all pupils to wear a Papdale School top as we believe that this has many advantages. Nevertheless, this is not compulsory.

There are now two local suppliers of Papdale Primary School  tops and the range of available options and styles has also increased. The suppliers are listed below along with, where available, links to their ranges and price lists.
