At AGFS our scholars are proud to be recognised as the smartest dressed in Greenwich. All scholars must dress according to our Uniform Policy, which reflects our values and reinforces our school’s culture of high expectations and academic achievement.
Our school uniform is important to us because it is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.
|Outdoor Clothing||All outdoor clothing must be black or blue with no logos. Hooded sweatshirts are not allowed as outerwear. Plain reflective bands may be worn for safety reasons on the arm or the school bag. AGFS logo only permitted.|
|Blazer||School blazer with AGFS logo on the pocket. No badges can be pinned or sewn onto the school uniform.|
|Shirt||White school shirt (short-sleeve for summer); top button should be fastened at all times.|
|Tie||School tie length must reach the waistband of trousers/skirts|
|Jumper*||School jumper (grey with blue piping) (this is an optional item and scholars are not expected to wear the jumper)|
|Trousers or Skirt||Grey school trousers (must cover the ankle when standing upright) OR grey school skirt (must cover the full knee when standing upright -- 24in or longer. Must not be ‘body-con’). Trousers must fit at the waist and allow movement in the leg. Trousers should not fit close to the skin in 'skinny' or 'legging/jegging' styles.|
|Socks/Tights||Must be black opaque. These may not have a frill trim.|
|Shoes||Must be black, flat and without logos, patterns or coloured stitching. Shoes must be able to be polished. Black trainers are not allowed. Ankle supports (such as those featured by the Kickers brand) are permitted. Boots are not permitted except in inclement weather, in which instance they must be removed at the school entrance and replaced with regulation school shoes. Discretion on what constitutes a shoe falls with the SLT.|
|School Bag||Must be a black rucksack-style bag that is fit for purpose with a small logo. Coloured dots awarded by the school for values linked to the reward system and matriculation may be sewn onto bag straps. Badges may be worn on the strap of the scholar’s bag. Handbags are not permitted as school bags.|
|PE Kit||Plain white polo shirt, plain black tracksuit bottoms or black shorts (shorts are not to be skin tight and should be worn to an appropriate length, just above the knee), black football socks, black/blue/white trainers and *reversible rugby jersey. Note: PE teachers will let scholars know when to wear the white polo short and when to wear the rugby top. Both of these must be brought for every PE lesson.
The PE department may invite scholars representing school teams to wear other AGFS branded items of sports clothing if they wish. This will be at the discretion of the PE department.
|Accessories||All accessories (such as scarves, gloves, hats, ear muffs) must be in school colours (black, blue or dark grey). No jewellery (except for the kara) is permitted. No earrings or studs at all are permitted. A plain watch is allowed. No nose, tongue or upper ear piercings are permitted. Accessories for hair such as bandanas, tights and scarves are not to be worn in any circumstances. Only conventional hair bands (black) can be worn.|
|Hair||Hair must be well-kept and tidy and allow the face to be seen. It may be tied back if necessary. No shaved patterns, lines or unnatural colours are permitted in hair or eyebrows. Hair must not be dyed, bleached or coloured in any way. If hair extensions are to be worn, the colour will be the same as the scholar’s natural hair colour. Hair accessories must be plain, without patterns and in school colours (black, blue, or grey). No diamanté or beads are permitted. Short hair should be no shorter than Grade 2. This includes any grading around the sides of the hair and undercuts. There should be no ‘step’ or ‘wedge’ effect. Beads are not allowed. Cornrows are allowed but must be kept neat.|
|Makeup||There should be no makeup worn at any time. Fake/acrylic/shellac nails or nail varnish including clear is not to be worn at school at any time.|

Any unwanted items of uniform may be given to the school office. We host regular second-hand uniform sales where good quality items can be picked up for low cost.
We ask that all clothing is named, including shoes, so that lost items can be returned to their owner. The school cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage of pupils’ property and valuables. All mislaid items are placed in the lost property box located in the Pastoral Office. We endeavour to return all named property, but give unclaimed lost property to a local children’s charity at the end of term.
