Copleston High School


All students are required to wear school uniform and parents/carers are expected to ensure that their children leave home for school correctly dressed.

The distinctive feature of our uniform is the maroon sweatshirt with logo and white polo shirt with logo, uniform trousers must be grey. This uniform is only available from Coes in Norwich Road or PMG Schoolwear in Westgate Street. No High Street alternatives are acceptable for any item of our uniform. Footwear must be black with no additional colours.
