GH uniform



At Glen Hills, we are proud of our distinctive school uniform. We fully expect all pupils to wear the Glen Hills uniform which is available to buy from : or from the Uniform Direct store (54-56 Humberstone Gate, Leicester, LE1 3PJ).

Our policy for school uniform is based on the principle that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Develops a sense of community and belonging to the school
  • Is practical and looks smart
  • Makes children feel equal to others in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable clothing for school
  • Is considered by parents as good value for money
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind
  • Has a positive impact on behaviour and attitudes in school

We will always act reasonably and sensibly in accommodating religious requirements, providing they do not pose a threat to security, safety and learning, or compromise the well-being of the school community.

If parents require an exception to any rules for medical or religious reasons, then a letter from a doctor or religious leader to the governors is required.
