School Uniform


School uniform at Somerville Primary School is set out in the following guidelines. The purpose of these guidelines is to support you as parent and carer with the schools expectations and to ensure clarity for all children, parents and carers over what is the expected standard.

As you are aware we have high expectations and standards to be maintained for all of our children.  School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the overall ethos of Somerville Primary School.  We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform guidelines. 

The school office sells school ties and water bottles for your convenience. For all school uniform orders please visit: Argyle Sports & Work Wear shop near to Wallasey Town Hall, at 66 King Street Wallasey Merseyside. CH44 8AU. Telephone number: 0151 639 9959. The Uniform shop is open Monday to Friday. The shop is very busy over the summer holidays and especially just before children return to school in September preparing uniforms for several schools, so please make sure you do not leave it too late to order your child's school uniform. Or you may wish to use one of the links at the top of this page.
