All shoes (no trainers) must be black (including soles) and have no markings on them at all. We will not accept any form of sports shoe/trainer e.g. Nike Presto, Adidas Gazelle etc.  Below are links to some suppliers Footwear Catalogues.  These show shoes that are accepted in school to assist parents/carers in the types of shoes we accepted - please note these catalogues are provided as guidance and you do not have to purchase shoes from these suppliers.   There is also a link to examples of shoes that are not acceptable to assist you.
