Primary Uniform

In 2019 Marsden partnered with New Zealand Uniforms, a leader in the school uniform space, to be our exclusive provider and seller of Marsden uniforms. With 24/7 access to online sales, home delivery, and a broader range of products from which to choose as well as a retail outlet, uniform shopping is easy.

You can visit New Zealand Uniform at two locations: One at 168 Thorndon Quay, not far from Westpac Stadium, and a second in Porirua at 5b/16 Parumoana Street. Both stores are open six days a week during normal business hours but items can be purchased online 24/7, 365 days a year.  You can view our uniform range here 

The sales staff in the store have our uniform guidelines and are happy to do fittings with or without an appointment. You can book an appointment with them online as well.    

We expect our students to maintain a high standard of dress in school, when travelling to and from school and when representing the School at any function.
