In our school, we value and respect difference and individuality. We have our children at heart and in mind in all that we do. We recognise that every person in our school community has a unique personality that we shall nurture.

The Coombes School Council

At The Coombes we believe that a school uniform can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on school work and making the classroom a more serious environment which will allow the children to perform better academically. A uniform also means that the students don't have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. As they all look the same, worrying about what you wear isn't so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend, which can put a great deal of financial pressure on the parents. The school believes that the uniforms show that our children are part of an organisation, a larger family, it is something that should be worn with pride.
