School Uniform

We are proud to be part of the Leicester Grammar School Trust, and the branding and uniform reflect our association. In line with the Trust’s decision to move away from a ‘Boys’ Uniform’ and a ‘Girls’ Uniform’, we now have ‘Uniform 1’ and ‘Uniform 2’ for Senior School pupils. It is a choice to wear either Uniform 1 or Uniform 2 on a permanent basis, not a combination of both.

Should you have any questions about the uniform policy or about the requirements for either uniform option, you should contact the school office.

Please see the uniform requirements for Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior School below. There is also a separate Sports Kit List for Year 3 to 11.

General rules for all pupils:

  • Pupils should be dressed smartly and should take pride in their appearance.
  • No ostentatious appearance allowed.
  • Coats, scarves, hats and gloves should not be worn once in school.
  • In inclement weather, either the school coat (compulsory for Reception to Year 6) or a plain dark overcoat (Senior School only) may be worn outside.
  • Hair must be neat in style and natural in colour – no ostentatious hair styles or colours allowed.  
  • Long hair must be tied back (in a navy/black hair bobble). No headbands or other decorative head wear.
  • Years 9, 10 & 11 pupils are permitted to wear hair down but must be tied back for certain activities.
