THE first pupils at a school due to open its doors next month have been showing off their new uniform.

Durham Free School has unveiled the purple, black and grey outfits its first pupils will wear from September.

The uniform comprises a black blazer, striped tie, purple jumper with grey V-neck stripe, white shirt and grey trousers or skirt.

For sport, the children will wear black and purple rugby shirts, purple polo shirts, black shorts and purple hoodies.

Head teacher Peter Cantley said: "We believe that a great uniform helps to engender a sense of pride among pupils and builds a strong identity for the school.

"Our uniform will complement and enhance our children’s educational experience and give them a sense of belonging and high standards that is so important to our vision for The Durham Free School."

Among the new intake of around 30 pupils is 11-year-old Kitty Tilder, from Spennymoor. She said: "I really like the uniform. I think we all look very smart."

Durham Free School will open in the former Durham Gilesgate Sports College building in September, as a temporary measure, while a permanent site is found to the south east of the city.
