Sixth Form Uniform

School Uniform - Now Online

I am pleased to let you know that the online shop for school uniform via Stevensons, the new school uniform provider, is now live. Please click the link below to view and purchase school uniform:

https://stevensons.co.uk/schools/glyn-school-ewell/823

Stevensons has a shop based in Epsom in the Lester Bowden building, which is open six days a week. Uniform is now available to purchase in store, online (with options for ‘click and collect’ or full home delivery), by telephone and at pop-up shops.

Stevensons are the largest UK supplier of uniforms and sportswear and work with over 500 schools. We are confident that such experience and scale will ensure high levels of customer service, as well as competitively low prices. Stevensons have been able to reduce the cost of some items of school uniform and will continue to work with Macron who supply the PE kit.

Mrs Leisa Sleat, School Business Leader

 

Uniform Policy

We have high expectations of our Sixth Formers and this includes personal appearance. We believe that our uniform policy benefits the school in a number of ways

  • It encourages identification with the school and nurtures the notion of community
  • It protects students from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • It supports discipline and good behaviour and ensures the health and safety of students
  • It instils a sense of pride in the school
  • It allows staff to concentrate their time and effort on teaching and learning

The decision about what is and is not acceptable will always remain with the school. Students are expected to adhere to the uniform rules on the journey to and from school.
