Our Uniform at Victory

At Victory, we feel strongly that our students should look smart and ready to achieve great things. Equally, we put a great deal of support in place for families to meet our expectations.

We run a successful second-hand uniform shop and we don’t charge for the items included – you can make a donation if you’re able to, but equally we’d love everyone to just commit to donating your unwanted items back to us. Coats, shoes and trainers are as welcome as regular uniform items.

Please contact [email protected] if you’d like to find out more about how we can help you.
