All students are required to wear school uniform. An acceptance of a place at Ratton School implies an acceptance by parents and students of the school’s dress code. Full school uniform must be worn for registration and assembly.
We are extremely proud of our new uniform, which we believe to be smart and appropriate for the busy environment of school. An acceptance of a place here at Ratton implies an acceptance of our school uniform. Ratton School uniform from September 2023:-

Due to increasing demand for uniform we have taken the decision to outsource our uniform to a local supplier. This will enable more stock to be held by our supplier and you will be able to order/buy outside school hours.
Sussex Uniforms, who are a reputable local company, work with a number of secondary schools in the area and already supply our school with our trousers and shorts, but will now undertake supplying all school uniform directly to you. This has proved a successful system with our neighbouring schools. Please use the link below to access their website.
Students who come to school with incorrect uniform for any reason will be offered an alternative from our stock for that day, or be asked to go home and return appropriately dressed. Should you be unclear of the standard required, please contact school to seek clarification before purchasing items that may be incorrect.
At Ratton, we take pride in the appearance of our pupils during PE lessons, and whilst representing the school in fixtures and sporting events. We wish for our pupils to be both smart and comfortable during their lessons. After receiving feedback from our students in a recent survey, we have decided to make some alterations to our PE kit.
These are now available to purchase on the Sussex Uniforms website.
