Uniform

School Uniform
From September 2016

All pupils of Watford Grammar School for Girls, including the Sixth Form, wear school uniform. We believe that uniform is important in building and supporting the school community and is a visible sign of the school's high standards. We greatly value the support of parents in ensuring girls wear correct uniform. Girls who persistently infringe uniform rules are sent home.

Details of what is required are set out below together with links to retailers. Some items are available directly from the school.

Years 7 - 11


For Years 7 to 9 inclusive:

  • Navy blue traditional blazer with school badge on breast pocket. The badge is compulsory. (Separate blazer badges for sewing onto blazers can be purchased from the Finance Office at School.)
  • Please note that the blazer badge changes from the single shield to the double crest from September 2015.

For Years 10 and 11:

  • The blazer is not compulsory.

For all five years:

  • Gold fitted open neck blouse, with or without school crest. (Not PE or T shirt).
  • Navy blue V-neck jumper, woollen or sweatshirt material, with school crest.
  • Smart, dark navy blue tailored skirt or trousers, of a suitable style and appropriate length. Lycra skirts are not permitted.
  • Trousers should be straight-legged and hemmed. Jeans style, denim, corduroy trousers, or trousers which are tight on the leg, are not permitted.
  • Yellow and white striped apron for Food and Nutrition.

 


Sixth Form

  • Black suit, consisting of short or mid-length jacket and black tailored knee-length skirt, or trousers.
(Because navy blue jackets are difficult to find in the shops and likely therefore to be expensive, we have opted for black in the Sixth Form.)
  • White fitted open neck blouse, preferably with school crest.
  • Black V-neck woollen jumper with school crest (worn underneath the jacket if needed in cold weather).

The School maintains a stock of very good quality second hand uniform, including PE kit and Sixth Form  uniform, at very reasonable prices, many items hardly used.  Students wishing to purchase second hand uniform should come to the medical room between 3.45 and 4pm on a Monday or Thursday and ask for Mrs Barrett.
There is an extensive selection of blazers, jumpers, blouses, skirts & trousers available, as well as other school items, e.g. PE kit, science aprons, etc.
PE kit costs £2 per item; all other items cost £1 with all monies going directly back into the school. Please bring coins as the shop has a limited amount of change.
If you have any uniform that your daughter has out-grown, please donate it via the school office.

Please contact Mrs Barrett for further details.
