We consider that having all of your children dressed smartly in our simple uniform is important for several reasons:

  • It provides our pupils with a sense of identity and pride in our school. 
  • It enhances the appearance of our pupils and therefore the reputation of our school.
  • It helps to instil in our pupils a sense of purpose when they put on their uniform in the mornings.
  • Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform of some form or other and therefore we are helping to prepare our pupils for their life of work.
  • It overcomes the problem for both parents and teachers of what is or is not suitable for school.

We understand that the uniform should not cost you any more than the clothing you would normally buy for your children and therefore we have kept the basic requirements very straightforward.

Boys

  • Black blazer with the school badge
  • Black V-necked plain pullovers with no piping, buttons or motifs of any kind are optional for girls and boys. They are not a replacement for the blazer.
  • Black school style trousers which are not skinny fit
  • White button through shirt which allows a clip-on tie to be worn smartly
  • School tie in appropriate House colour ( clip-on tie only)
  • Plain black shoes (not boots) with no logos or emblems (not canvas or trainer style)
  • We ask that your child’s uniform is kept neat and clean and that you mark all of their clothing with their full name.

Girls

  • Black blazer with the school badge
  • Black tailored trousers which are not skinny fit or a plain black skirt which is at least knee length
  • White button through blouse which allows a clip-on tie to be worn properly
  • Clip-on Granville school tie in appropriate House colour (clip-on tie only)
  • Plain black low-heeled shoes (not boots) with no logos or emblems (not canvas or trainer style)
  • Black V-necked plain pullovers with no piping, buttons or motifs of any kind are optional for girls and boys. They are not a replacement for the blazer.
  • We appreciate that for modesty reasons some pupils prefer to wear a T-shirt under their whiteshirt. We ask that this is white only please with no logos.
  • We ask that your child’s uniform is kept neat and clean and that you mark all of their clothing with their full name.

Jewellery, hair and make-up

Whilst we understand that our pupils are growing up and want to exert their individuality we ask that they don’t do this by wearing excessive jewellery, having extreme hairstyles /patterns or unnatural colours or wearing too much make up.

We allow the following to be worn:

  • A watch
  • One pair of small gold or silver stud earrings, worn in each earlobe. No other body piercings or retainers are allowed.
  • Discrete make up for Y10 and Y11 pupils only – this means we should not be able to tell a pupil is wearing it from a small distance away. Colours should not be too bright and it should give a work like impression.

Please ensure that your child does not wear the following items as they will not be allowed in school:

  • Jeans or trousers that are jean-like (often these have studs on the pockets)
  • Cords
  • Leggings
  • Tight fitting trousers of any kind. Trousers must have some ‘give’ and not taper in below the knee.
  • Short skirts (please ensure that when you choose a skirt with your child that it is at least knee length)
  • Trainers
  • Pumps
  • High heels
  • Coloured T-shirts under their white shirt
  • Shirts or blouses which are unsuitable for a tie
  • Cardigans
  • Black jumpers with logos
  • Leather jackets

If your child comes to school dressed inappropriately the following sanctions may apply depending on the precise situation:

  • Confiscation of offending item (must be collected after 3.00 p.m. by parent or other adult with written permission from parent)
  • Pupil sent home after a telephone call to you explaining the situation
  • Pupil issued with detention at break, lunch or after school.
  • Pupil is isolated for a period of time
  • Pre-exclusion warning letter
  • Referral to head teacher

We have spoken to a large number of girls who are wearing the correct trousers and they have purchased them from Next, Asda, BHS, M&S at reasonable prices.

Recommended School Uniform suppliers

We work closely with the following local suppliers who we feel provide good quality clothing at a reasonable price:

 

PE KIT 2016-17

 

As you may be aware, we decided to introduce a new PE kit from September 2016.  We took this decision because our pupils wanted a more modern kit which would be comfortable with a unisex design. 

 

The full kit requirements are as follows:

 

•Clean trainers suitable for indoor use

•Trainers suitable for outdoor use

•Navy shorts for indoor wear

•Black shorts for outdoor wear

•Nike Academy mid-layer jumper*

•Performance Polo shirt*

•Football boots

•A plain black tracksuit (optional and worn at teacher’s discretion)

•Outdoor sports jacket (optional)

 

Currently, the items marked * are purchased via an on-line stockist, Liss Sports,  They offer a competitive package for £39.99  which include  the  performance polo, a Nike Academy midlayer jumper, navy shorts and navy socks.

                                                      

 

As Liss Sports are an on-line supplier, you will not be able to purchase the new kit at pupil Schoolwear or Clothing4 Schools, although we are currently exploring this as a possibility.

 

However, we want to give parents choice and keep the uniform cost as low as possible. With this in mind, we are happy to let Year pupils continue to wear the old PE kit which pupils in Years 8-11 currently wear. This consists of a pale blue airtex top and navy shorts similar to the design below.  These can be purchased in many major supermarkets and will shortly be stocked by our local suppliers. Should Year 8-11 pupils wish to purchase the new kit they are very welcome to do so.
