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. Where a student has identified that they are Trans, and on discussion with them and their parents / carers, they can wear the uniform of their true gender. How your child 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 Beat School Uniforms.

If in doubt, always consult the school before you make any purchase.
