Uniform

School Uniform is an important part of JHGS's identity and the policy will be enforced. In reviewing the school uniform policy, the Headteacher and Governors have taken account of all statutory and non statutory guidance issued by the Department of Education.

Full details of the uniform requirement for all year groups from September 2023 can be found here

The PE kit details for Years 7-11 can be found here.

JHGS uniform is sold by our new supplier for both daywear and sports kit - Hawkinsport in Bourne End.

A full tender process was undertaken in 2021, in line with the statutory guidance that was issued in November 2021, and the school seeks to provide the best possible value for money, whilst maintaining the benefits of a standard uniform.

Parking is available at their store at Unit 10A, Wessex Rd, Bourne End SL8 5DT, and uniform may also be ordered online for delivery either to home or to school. https://www.hawkinsport.co.uk/collections/john-hampden-grammar-school .  A JHGS exclusive uniform fitting day for new Year 7 students will be held at Hawkinsport on Saturday 13th July 2024.  Appointments should be booked on the Hawkinsport website at the link above.

In order to minimise the cost of daywear, the only essential JHGS branded items are the school blazer and tie which can now be purchased from Hawkinsport. 

A blazer pocket badge is also available from Hawkinsport which may be sewn onto a plain black blazer if required.

All other items of daywear are unbranded.

The sports kit was re-styled in 2022, although the JHGS black and gold colours remain. From September 2022 incoming Year 7s will be expected to have the new style kit, but for existing students this can be phased in as new kit is purchased. There are a few items that are required (reversible games top, house top, football/rugby shorts, socks and holdall) but much of the available kit is optional.

Second hand uniform 

The school has a stock of second hand uniform and we hold sales regularly. There is a limited quantity of PE kit available from the second hand shop.

Students eligible for Free School Meals are entitled to a grant towards the cost of new school uniform and can access the second hand uniform shop at a reduced price. Please contact the school for details.

PE and Games Kit

Boys will be expected to have for all PE and Games lessons.  If you have any questions please speak to a member of the PE department.

 

Sixth Form Uniform and Personal Appearance

Students in the Sixth Form are expected to act as examples to younger students and should present themselves tidily at all times, including the journey to and from school. 

The final decision on suitability of dress and presentation rests with the Assistant Head - Director of Sixth Form.  Their dress code is also here

School uniform will be worn properly at all times, including for school matches, unless the member of staff in charge has agreed otherwise.
