St Gregory the Great's distinctive uniform helps students identify with the values of our community, including fairness, equality, and the pursuit of excellence. It looks smart, it’s value for money and it’s appropriate for classrooms, labs, workshops and sports.

Our uniform shops sell at the best possible prices. Please see the bottom of this page for shop links.

Acceptable School Shoes
Shoes must be plain black and should not have a separate heel of more than 30mm in height. Where the shoe has a ‘filled-in’ sole (i.e. the heel and sole are moulded together) then the heel should be no more than 40mm high. Heels such as ‘Kitten heels’ or stilettos are not allowed. (In other words, flat, black, sensible, school shoes, NOT any form of trainer or canvas shoe.)

Unacceptable School Shoes
The reasons for these shoes being unacceptable are: heels or wedges too high (over 40 mm); not plain black; cheap ‘Dolly Style’ shoes are too thin and not supportive enough so they are unsafe; canvas; over decorative; white soles. Boots or trainers are not acceptable.

Notes on uniform and other equipment

The following are not appropriate for school and are not permitted:

  • Hoodies
  • Obvious make up/nail varnish
  • Jewellery (other than a watch and/or crucifix)
  • Coloured T-Shirts, even if under shirts – they don’t look smart
  • Students must keep their hair tidy and of reasonable length - this should not be exceptionally short or long. Hair dyed in unnatural or varied colours is not permitted, nor are extravagant hairstyles.

 

All items should be clearly marked with the student’s name. This allows us to return lost items, so you don’t have to pay to replace them.

Students who arrive to school in incorrect uniform will be sent home to change, or will work in isolation from other students. We also have a ready supply of second hand uniform which we can provide on a temporary basis if necessary. If your child arrives out of uniform, her/his Head of Year will follow this up with you. If there is an unavoidable problem with uniform, please tell us by writing a note in your child’s planner.

Mobile phones

Mobile phones are not allowed in school. If they are seen or heard they will be confiscated. Read the mobile phone policy.
