School Uniform

We believe that many people judge a school by the appearance of its students. For this and many other reasons, extremes of fashion are discouraged and we ask for parental co-operation in ensuring the smart appearance of students.

Years 7 to 11

  • A navy blue blazer of conventional design with the Calday Grange Grammar School badge.  A new style of blazer will be introduced for students joining year 7 in September 2019. The new style blazer can only be purchased from the school.  Students in all other year groups will continue to wear the old style of blazer for the remainder of their time at the school. 
  • School tie - this should have the coloured stripes of the student’s house, Bennett - Blue, Glegg - Red, Hollowell - Green
  • Plain white shirt
  • Black trousers – corduroy, casual cotton trousers and jeans are not permitted
  • Navy blue v-neck pullover - either plain or with the Calday crest
  • Plain black shoes – sports shoes or trainers are not permitted
  • Outdoor coat - a suitable outdoor coat should be worn.
  • Hoodies may be worn as outerwear but must not be worn under blazers.
  • PE KIT - Please see below. A new style of PE kit will be introduced for students joining year 7 in September 2019.  The new PE kit includes a hooded top as compulsory.  Students in other year groups may also wear the new style top as an optional item. The new style hooded top can only be purchased from the school.

Sixth Form

At Calday we recognise that Sixth Form students are young adults forming part of the school community. We have therefore developed a dress code that, we think, reflects their status.

Students are expected to dress in smart “office wear” suitable for a formal environment. All students should wear a suit and male students must wear a tie.

In the Sixth Form, students are allowed to wear simple stud earrings but no other facial piercings are permitted. Boys may have a neat beard and/or moustache.

Boys
  • Suit - either black, navy, dark grey or beige
  • Plain short or long sleeved shirt worn inside the suit trousers
  • A neutral jumper may be worn, plain or simple stripe, this must be in addition to a jacket (collar and tie should be visible)
  • Tie
  • Brown or black shoes
  • An outdoor coat may be worn on the way to school but must not replace the suit jacket.
Girls
  • Suit - with full-length tailored trousers, knee-length dress or skirt (either black, navy, dark grey or beige)
  • Blouse or shirt, short or long sleeved, worn under the suit jacket
  • A neutral jumper or cardigan may be worn, this must be in addition to a jacket
  • Brown or black shoes
  • An outdoor coat may be worn on the way to school but must not replace the suit jacket.
