General information

All items of school wear should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.

Black shoes of sensible design made by reliable firms for school use are required.  Students should not wear platform shoes or have heels above 5 cm. Plimsol type, canvas shoes or trainers are not allowed.  Boots may only be worn with trousers.

We recommend that students have a coat for winter.  All coats must be suitable for school.  No obvious logos and no leather/imitation leather in black, navy or grey.  Some parents understandably are concerned about their child's safety in the winter months when it is dark.  We strongly recommend taking this into consideration when buying a coat and bag; reflective strips can be found on many coats and bags available for purchase.  

Bag: no particular bag is specified.  Students are free to use a bag of their choice.  It needs to be large enough to transport equipment to and from school every day.  We recommend a rucksack and also suggest that students choose a bag which is easily identifiable ie not plain black.

Jewellery should be limited to a wristwatch and one pair of plain studs for ears, conventionally worn, ie one earring in each ear lobe.  Other facial piercings of any kind are not permitted for any reason.  Please note that dyed hair and unconventional hairstyles are not acceptable.  The Headteacher is the final arbiter of the interpretation of the word 'unconventional' in the context of Chesham Grammar School; this includes hair with contrived patterns or hair that, in her opinion is too short or too long.

Shirts and ties are to be worn in a conventional manner; shirts should be tucked in with top buttons fastened.  Ties should be tied to an appropriate length.

Sixth Form students should adhere to the sixth form dress code and may be sent home to change if deemed necessary.
