Sixth Form

Handsworth Grammar is a uniform school, even in the Sixth Form. We feel that this helps to create a sense of corporate identity and gives the students a sense of belonging. In addition, it helps to prevent the problems of deciding what to wear each morning! Non-compliance will mean students are sent home to dress correctly.

The uniform comprises:

Black School Blazer (No fashion jackets). Blazers must have the school badge sewn on to them.

White or Black Shirt (No brand names or logos).
