Uniform and PE Kit
In September 2013 we introduced a new uniform as follows:
Grey jacket with school badge, black trousers, white shirt, school tie incorporating house colours and black v-neck sweater (optional) either badged or plain. For PE: black shorts, outdoor reversible games top, akoa polo shirt and sector hoodie. All sportswear except socks will incorporate the school badge.
Grey jacket with school badge, black skirt or trousers (skirts must only be worn with black tights), white shirt, school tie incorporating house colours and black v-neck sweater (optional) either badged or plain. For PE: black court skort or shorts, akoa polo shirt and sector hoodie. All sportswear except socks will incorporate the school badge.
Although the PE hoodie may not be worn generally around school, it may be worn during residential school trips, removing the need to purchase expensive trip specific hoodies, as is currently the case.
The uniform is available to purchase on-line: www.trutexmeir.com, or from a mobile shop which will visit the QEGS site (Dining Hall) on the following dates.
