PLEASE BE AWARE THAT EXTRAORDINARY AMENDMENTS TO THE UNIFORM POLICY HAVE BEEN MADE FOR SEPTEMBER 2020. FULL DETAILS CAN BE FOUND IN THE ‘RETURN TO SCHOOL GUIDE’.
A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and anyone arriving at school in non-uniform clothing may expect to be sent home to get changed. Wear your uniform with pride, remembering that:
- All uniform items must be clearly labelled.
- Top buttons must be done up and ties knotted correctly.
- Boys’ shirts must be tucked in and girls’ blouses must not show below the blazer.
- Skirts must be worn at the correct length.
- Jewellery is not permitted in school with the exception of one stud in each ear.
- Trainers must not be worn in school at any time.
- Coats must not be worn in the classroom.
- Hair must not be dyed an unnatural colour.
- Extreme hair cuts are not allowed (shaved patches) and should be no shorter than a number three.
- Hair to be tied back at all times during the school day.
Please note that, from September 2020, we will be introducing House Ties for Year 7 students only. This is not a requirement for all years unless you wish or need to replace your current school tie.
UNIFORM, PE & DANCE KIT
Please insist that your child wears the correct uniform every day and for all school occasions.
Uniform should be clean and tidy and clearly labelled. Uniform can be purchased from our recommended suppliers, Trutex or Scholars of Bath. They have been carefully chosen because they combine ‘best value’ and quality.
Please note that girls’ skorts, rugby shirts, polo shirt, hoodies, sports socks can only be purchased from Scholars. Students may wear sports leggings or tracksuit bottoms but they must be plain black.
The school will not accept any deviation from the agreed school uniform in order to maintain high standards amongst our students. In particular, skirts must be at a modest length on the knee or just above.
Students may not wear trainers or canvas shoes in school as an alternative to school shoes. The school bag should be waterproof to protect books from rain damage. In order to ensure good posture ‘ruck-sack’ type bags are strongly encouraged. Handbags are not acceptable as a school bag.
Uniform is available from Scholars of Bath. Some uniform items are also available from Trutex Direct (you will need the code:LEA00499SB) however, their website is displaying the incorrect PE kit and ties. We have asked them to update this information so hope that this will be corrected shortly.
Please note the tartan skirt, house ties, and PE kit are only available from Scholars of Bath.
Scholars Bath – Re-opening Monday 15th June
Bath Shop: Monday to Saturday 9.00am–5.30pm and Sunday 10.00am-2.00pm
The shop will be providing a counter service only as the fitting rooms will be closed. However, staff will be on hand to assist with sizing and any garment purchased can of course be exchanged or returned for a refund. To ensure Social Distancing is maintained as far as possible, only TWO customers will be permitted in the shop at a time. This can be a family group, but where possible please keep this to a minimum number, ideally one adult with one child requiring uniform.
St Gregory’s Uniform is now also available online at: www.scholars-uk.com
We will be reviewing our shop operation after two weeks and making any necessary changes. Please be assured that we have flexibility in increasing our opening times to whatever is required.

The Saint Gregory’s PTFA are in the process of setting up a pre-loved uniform shop however, due to Covid-19, this has been delayed slightly. We are sorry that we are currently unable to offer this option to our families.
If you are completing Year 11 or currently at Saint Gregory’s and considering buying new uniform this year, ready for September, please can we ask that you keep hold of anything that is in good, clean condition. We are still hopeful that the PTFA may be able to launch a pre-loved uniform sale at some point next term but will need stock to make it work. If you have good quality uniform that needs a new home, please keep it safe and we will arrange for drop-offs at school as soon as we are able to.
