From September 2019, we will be operating a more gender neutral uniform policy where students will have the opportunity to choose form a suite of uniform options. The options are as follows:

Blazer Black blazer with school badge in House colours.
Shirt (and tie)

- White collared shirt, buttoned up to the neck and tucked in. House tie.

- White open neck blouse with plain collar and House colours. A tie does not need to be worn with this option.

Jumper A plain - no logo - black V-neck jumper may be worn over the shirt or blouse. Sweatshirts and cardigans are not permitted.
Trousers Plain black, full length, tailored trousers. These must not be of skinny or overly loose fit and should be of an appropriate material, ie: no denim or chino material. Trousers should be worn appropriately and professionally.
Skirt School kilt (available from uniform stockists - see below). The school kilt should be of a professional length, resting on the knee. Skirts should not be rolled up at the waist.
Coat and Jacket Dark coat or jacket with no obvious logos.
Shoes Smart black low heeled shoes. Boots, trainers and shoes with no backs are not permitted.
Socks and Tights If wearing a skirt: white or black ankle socks or black tights. If wearing trousers: black ankle socks.

All students must adhere to the uniform regulations.  Uniform should be worn properly both at school and when travelling to and from school.

Students should remove any items of outdoor clothing on entering the school buildings.  This includes coats, hats,scarves, gloves etc.

The Senior Leadership Team at Leventhorpe will be the arbiter of the appropriateness of school uniform. The school stocks a range of uniform which are deemed as acceptable which can be lent to students, if necessary, and if students are not dressed appropriately.

The Senior Leadership Team reserve the right to ask parents to collect students from school to change their uniform, if they are in breach of the above expectations.

Most uniform is available from local department stores. Kilts and House blouses are obtainable from the following:
