A smart uniform encourages a sense of community and develops a sense of pride and self-respect.

Notre Dame requires all pupils to wear the correct uniform.

Our branded school uniform items can be bought from Trutex. Trutex stores can be found at 48-50 London Rd, Liverpool L3 5NF, and 27 County Rd, Liverpool L4 3QA.

School Ties

Each year group continue to have their own specific school tie. Year group ties provide students with a sense of belonging to their year group and also ensure the students are easily identified by year group.

Year Group Tie colours from September 2024 will be as follows:

  • Year 7 September 2024 PURPLE Stripe – to be bought as part of new uniform
  • Year 8 September 2024 Green stripe
  • Year 9 September 2024 Gold stripe
  • Year 10 September 2024 Red stripe
  • Year 11 September 2024 Blue stripe
  • Sixth Form September 2024 Black/White stripe

Tie colours will follow students as they move up each year, therefore, you do not need to purchase a new tie every year for your child unless you wish to. For example, our Year 7 students joining us from September 2024 will wear a PURPLE stripe tie for the 2024-25 academic year, this will remain their tie colour until they reach the end of Year 11.
