At Sir Frederick Gibberd College, we believe in demonstrating our individuality through talent, skill, and aptitude rather than appearance. We instil in our pupils the belief that 'true beauty comes from within'.
Our school uniform achieves three important goals:
- It encourages a sense of community, identity and pride. By wearing the same clothing, pupils are encouraged to think of the needs of the community as well as their own individual needs.
- It encourages our pupils to develop good habits for life. By learning to clean their shoes, fold trousers or hang up their blazers, pupils learn the habits of discipline and personal responsibility.
- It prevents unkindness or bullying while keeping costs down. By requiring all our pupils to wear the same low-cost uniform, we reduce the incentive for pupils to ask parents for the latest (and most expensive) items of fashion. As a result, costs are kept as low as possible and no child can be seen to be poorer or wealthier than any other.
