Gosforth Central Middle School



At Gosforth Central Middle School we foster a feeling of belonging and a sense of pride in our school community. The school uniform is worn by pupils to show that they are part of the school family and as clear signal that they are ready to conform to our high expectations of behaviour for learning. All aspects of this policy apply to all of our pupils, regardless of their gender.


Our uniform provider is Emblematic, for more information you can visit their site HERE. Orders can be placed directly with them.
