Manchester High School for Girls


From September 2018, almost all pupils at Manchester High School for Girls will be required to wear the new grey and purple uniform.

Only pupils that are in Year 11 during the 2018/19 academic year will be allowed to wear the old black and yellow uniform.

All other year groups (excluding Sixth Form) must wear the grey and purple uniform.

Sixth Form students are expected to adhere to the Sixth Form Dress Code.

School uniform is compulsory.

A high standard of personal appearance is expected from all Manchester High pupils and uniform should be clean and well maintained.

Sanctions, including after-school detention, may be imposed for infringements of uniform regulations. The Head Mistress reserves the right to send home any girl who does not comply with the School’s requirements. The School will contact parents if this situation arises.

Students are required to wear the School uniform throughout the day, when travelling to and from School and on all occasions when they represent Manchester High off site. Girls in Year 10 and 11 sitting examinations are expected to wear full School uniform. They must also be in the uniform if they are using School premises for study during examination periods.

All items of clothing and equipment should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Manchester High cannot accept responsibility or liability for the loss, theft or damage of personal property. Pupil’s clothing, equipment and possessions are not covered by the School’s insurance.
