School Uniform

All children attending Hook Junior School are required to wear the correct school uniform. A complete uniform is formed by combining appropriate upper and lower body uniform items, including some mandatory items that must bear the Hook Junior School logo and name and the appropriate House color.

Buying School Uniform

School uniforms for children attending Hook Junior School are supplied by Marks and Spencer. These are ordered online via the Hook Junior School page at mandsyourschooluniform.com. Items of school uniform bearing the Hook Junior School name and logo share the same sizing as school items held in Marks and Spencer stores.

Please note the terms and conditions for the supply and delivery of school uniform. We suggest grouping your items into as few orders as possible to keep delivery charges to a minimum. Standard delivery at the time of writing is £3.50 and orders over £30 qualify for free standard delivery. School uniforms supplied via Marks and Spencer's Your School Uniform website are not eligible for free delivery to your local Marks and Spencer store.

We encourage anyone who is having difficulties affording school uniform to contact us.

The Hook Schools Community Association (HSCA) holds a second-hand uniform sale on several occasions throughout the school year, usually during one of their other events. Follow the HSCA on Facebook to find out when the next sale is planned.

If you have any special sizing requirements (e.g. smaller or larger than advertised), please contact the Marks and Spencer Customer Services team for assistance.

Additional guidance and Customer Services contact information can be found in the M&S School Uniform Customer Service section at the foot of each page.
