School Uniform

St. Philomena’s has always prided itself upon the smartness of its pupils. All pupils are required to wear the full school uniform. This has always been the case since the school’s foundation. Pupils are renowned for their smart appearance and it is important that the high standards are maintained. We ask therefore, that the children arrive neatly dressed and that they wear their uniform with pride.


Coes Schoolwear is the school's appointed uniform supplier. Having specialised in providing quality school uniforms for almost 100 years, Coes is one of the foremost suppliers in the UK. All purchases can be made through their excellent online store (www.coesschoolwear.co.uk) or, alternatively, their flagship shop is based in Ipswich.
