Dressing Up Days 2024

We like to give you as parents plenty of notice of days of when children can dress up to come to school. Given that you have already bought uniform for your children and we are an ECO school, we also like to keep these simple and reusable to avoid needing to buy something special.


Our next dressing up day is planned for Friday 24th

May, in our International Week. Each class will be taking a country as a theme and we are inviting children to dress up  to  represent that country or wear the traditional costume of any country they have or can borrow. National sports team shirts can also be worn but not club shirts.





Here are the previous dressing up days this year:

Friday 15th March: Comic Relief


Comic Relief has again been chosen by our School Council as one of their charities this year. Children can wear red noses, funny hair and other red items, but not football shirts, and we will be collecting for Comic Relief.


All dressing up days are optional and just for those who enjoy them. W

we are equally happy for children to wear their normal uniform but they are not "non-uniform days".  We are not asking for any donations for any of these days except Comic Relief.


Thursday 18th January:  AA Milne's Birthday and Winnie-the-Pooh Day

Children can dress up as a character from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories and enjoy a fun lunch include Winnie-the-Pooh's Honey Cake.  We will be showing some Winnie-the-Pooh films in the Dining Hall.


Tuesday 13th February:  Chinese New Year - Year of the Dragon

Children can wear just one thing red, the Chinese lucky colour or even all red or red hair - not football shirts though. We will be serving a Chinese lunch complete with Fortune Cookies, and chopsticks for those who can handle them but we will still have knives and forks and good old British baked potatoes.  We will have some   exciting Chinese videos in the Dining Hall.


Thursday 7th March: World Book Day 

As we are having a live in-school performance of Jungle Book by M&M Productions this year, the dressing-up theme is any character from Rudolph Kipling's Jungle Book or any animal from a book, or just any book character.  Themed lunch and showing the film of The Jungle Book in the Dining Hall.
