Our school uniform is a very important part of our identity and is designed to allow pupils to feel smart and comfortable in their day-to-day activities.
Pupils should be smart at all times. There is a formal school uniform for all pupils in the Lower and Middle School (Years 7 to 11). Sixth Form pupils are allowed to wear their own suits. As leaders and role models, Sixth Formers are expected to set an example to the rest of the school through their high standard of business-like dress and the way in which they present themselves.
We are excited to announce that we are introducing a new uniform and sports kit across the Foundation. As well as a new design, we have appointed two new suppliers to ensure the best possible service for our families.
To minimise the impact to parents, the existing uniform will be phased out over the next two years. Initially, we will only be asking children starting in Year 7 in in September 2021 to purchase the new uniform, with it becoming mandatory for all pupils from September 2023.
For more information, including timelines for the phased introduction and FAQs, please visit our Uniform Hub.

Old Uniform Guides:
The Sixth Form Dress Code plays an important role in contributing to the spirit and expectations of both the Sixth Form and the wider school. As leaders and role models, Sixth Form students are expected to set an example to the rest of the school through their high standard of business-like dress and the way in which they present themselves. The Sixth Form Dress Code encapsulates one of the key aims of the Sixth Form at King’s-to help our young people develop a mature and independent approach to learning and self-development. Our Dress Code aims to promote a smart, modern and professional appearance that allows our students to prepare for life beyond King’s.
