Gryphon School uniform

School uniform expectations for all in Years 7-11:

  • Navy sweatshirt and white polo shirt with the school emblem
  • Black trousers (boys and girls) – smart/tailored low lycra content.
  • Black skirt – knee length.
  • Black shoes or black trainersonly if all black. No boots.
  • Pierced ears – one stud in each ear – no facial piercings and no other jewellery worn.
  • Nail varnish and heavy make-up are also not part of the school uniform and will be removed if worn. No extreme hair colours.

PE Uniform:

The following kit is needed for all PE lessons at The Gryphon School. We recommend that all kit including socks and trainers are labelled with full name and tutor group.

Due to the nature of the activities we do, it is essential that any ear piercings are either removed or students bring in tape to cover these. In addition, we ask that all students with long hair bring in hair bands to tie their hair up out of their eyes.

For sports, the uniform for all Years 7-11 is:

·        Navy blue and red reversible games top

·        Navy blue short-sleeved polo top

·        Navy blue shorts, skort, sports leggings or jogging bottoms

·        Navy blue long socks

·        White socks

·        Trainers

·        Sports boots with studs or moulds

·        Gum shields and shin pads are strongly recommended

The following pieces of kit are alternative versions available to complement the above. If purchased, this can be used for any Gryphon sport activity. Again, please ensure all if labelled.

Alternative PE kit:

·        Navy blue and red sports polo  (branded)

·        Navy blue and red skort

·        Gryphon sports hoodie


Gum shields and shin pads are strongly recommended

Those with pierced ears should only wear one stud in each ear. Extreme hairstyles and hair colours are not permitted since they are felt to be incompatible with uniform. In Sixth Form, there is an agreed dress code.

Personal property at school:

  • If in doubt, parents are requested to seek advice about interpretation of these guidelines
  • It is essential to name all items of clothing
  • Lost property can be collected from the lost property store by the Geography cabins each day between 1.45 pm and 2.00 pm
  • If your child is unable for any reason to temporarily attend in full school uniform, you must write to the tutor to explain why and indicate how the situation is being corrected
