GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Sixth Form Uniform

Sixth Form Uniform - Key Stage 5

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 what 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.

Please see the table below for the school’s uniform list, including details about required and optional uniform requirements, and where to buy specific items. 

Stevenson’s stock a large range of items but other than those listed below, all other items are optional.
