  • 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:
