St Thomas of Canterbury

In God's Love We Flourish
In Amore Dei Floremus


We expect all pupils at St Thomas of Canterbury to attend school well- presented in the correct school uniform. PE kit is part of the school uniform. All uniform should be clearly labelled with the child's name.

For the academic year 2020/21, the children at St Thomas of Canterbury will be wearing our new uniform available at Crested Schoolwear in Walsall town centre (details below); all new uniform fashions the newly designed embroidered school logo. We decided to bring the uniform in during this academic year so purchasing new uniform for your growing child is cost effective.

School Uniform


All pupils are expected to wear/have the following:

  • Black trousers / school tartan dress or pinafore (summer dresses are under review)
  • White shirt with a collar (long or short sleeved)*
  • School tie (new design is silver lined)
  • School V neck jumper / cardigan (now fashioning new logo)
  • Plain black school shoes with appropriate heel (not trainers)
  • Plain grey / burgundy / black socks or tights
  • Burgundy or school-coloured hair bobble
  • Book bag
  • Pupil planner

*Nursery Children only will be allowed to wear white polo shirts instead of white shirts and the school tie.

PE Kit

All pupils are expected to have the following:

  • Burgundy School Polo Shirt (now fashioning new logo)
  • Black Shorts / Plain black leggings / Black Sports Skorts
  • Black Pumps for indoor PE (trainers may be worn for outdoor PE and games and/or appropriate boots for games played on grass)

  • Swimming Kit (as required - currently Year 4)
    • Towel
    • Swimming trunks / costume (no bikinis)

So that your child always has access to their PE kit, we would encourage your child to leave their PE bag in school unless they are taking it home to be washed. If you have any questions regarding extra PE items (e.g. shin pads, leotards, etc.) for clubs, please see the Clubs FAQs.

School Coat

Optional black school coats are also available at Crested Schoolwear. These coats are of exceptional quality. They are waterproof, fleece-lined and come with a roll-out hood hidden in the collar - these are highly recommended at only £23.99.
