The new Les Varendes High School uniform

Share this page

The new uniform for our school will be implemented from September 2024, replacing existing uniforms at both La Mare de Carteret and Les Varendes High schools.

It was developed by the New School Design Team; a group made up of staff and students from both schools who have supported the choices and decision making in the uniform design.  Particularly of note is the new school crest which embodies the vision of the group for the new school's identity. 

High standards of dress and personal appearance for all students are an important part of Les Varendes High School.  We expect students to take pride in their appearance and in being a member of the school community.  All items, unless indicated, are available from a number of uniform retailers including Fletcher Sports and Game Changers, with a 75% subsidy provided from the States of Guernsey, more information on which is provided below.

Each voucher will have a unique voucher with a QR/barcode code for every student at Les Varendes High School and La Mare De Carteret. This voucher will also detail what uniform items students are entitled to under the subsidy scheme (details below).

Vouchers will be distributed in June during Tutor time with a Group Call message being sent to parents/carers on the day to inform them that the vouchers have been handed out.  

The uniform voucher will be required at the time of purchasing to ensure that the subsidy is applied. 

Vouchers will be scanned by the retailers which will track and void the voucher when it has been used.
