Dress Code

We are proud of our uniform at The Priory School and students are required to conform to a high standard of dress. By joining The Priory School you accept our definition of what is appropriate; we cannot admit variations to our dress code as this undermines consistency. How your son/daughter dresses for school and leaves home says much about them as individuals and they are also ambassadors for The Priory School in the wider community. Specialist items of uniform may be purchased from Hawkins in Hitchin.
