Uniform


Uniform

Prince Henry’s Grammar School is one of the broad majority of English schools where it is agreed policy that students (in our case below the Sixth Form) wear school uniform.  Our smart uniform is designed to be practical and affordable. It is one way in which we aim to promote a sense of pride and to teach students that they have a responsibility to themselves and to each other to ensure that the good name and reputation of the school are preserved and developed.

In cases of financial difficulty, help with uniform may be available.  Any parent/carers who think they may be entitled to such assistance are asked to contact their child's Year Manager.  To obtain advice regarding the provision of welfare benefits i.e. free school meals, see the advice from Leeds City Council here.

Students not conforming to correct standards of uniform will be isolated from other students. Where an explanatory note is provided by parents, they will be allowed to work in the Library/NET Centre for up to two days. After this time, or where there is no parental explanation, students will work in the Isolation Room until the infringement is rectified. A doctor’s note must be provided where, for medical reasons, students cannot wear school shoes.
