Uniform

School uniformPrince 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 6th form) wear school uniform.  Our smart uniform is designed to be practical and affordable. It is the 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, a grant towards the cost of uniform may be available.  Any parent/carers who think they may be entitled to such assistance are asked to contact the Leeds Benefit Service on 0113 222 4404.  You should also contact this number to obtain advice regarding the provision of welfare benefits i.e. free school meals, maintenance grants.
