School Life

Uniform

It is the policy of the Governors that our students should wear the correct school uniform and a high standard of personal appearance is expected at all times. School uniform relieves students of anxieties over wardrobe and image, builds a strong school identity and enables the students (who are by far our best advert) to represent the school with pride in the local community.

The uniform is designed to be inexpensive and yet distinctive and smart in black, grey and pale blue. Please contact Kinver High School for more details.
