Sixth Form Uniform
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:
Male and Female students:
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).
Black Trousers which must be full length (No skinny jeans, jeans style trousers or leggings).
Black Shoes (No Boots, trainers, canvas pumps or high heels).
Dark Grey or Black ‘V’ Neck Sweater (with or without School Colours). No hoodies or sweatshirts allowed.
School Badge (purchased from School).
School Tie – Sixth Form Tie (purchased from the School).
Female students may wear a Dark Grey or Black Skirt (instead of trousers).
The skirt MUST be knee length or longer (NO jersey style, no deep slits, ruffles or patterns allowed).
Plain Black Tights
Headscarf Plain Black (NO coloured patterns) Sixth Form tie is still to be worn.
