School Uniform

The school, with the full support of the Parent Council, requires that all pupils conform to our uniform and the support of parents is needed in order to ensure that pupils maintain a high standard of dress at all times. Parents have the most influence when it comes to school dress. The uniform at its most basic is black and white and should be achievable by all. It should be noted that uniform concerns will be recorded and repeated concerns will now result in sanctions which will include letters home and limiting pupil access to privileges e.g. attending school events such as discos and the Prom or representing the school in extra-curricular activities.

All pupils should wear black trousers/jeans, skirts or tailored shorts and dark shoes or trainers.

GGS polo shirt or T-Shirt and GGS hoodie, sweatshirt or jumper. Pupils in S1-3 also have the option to wear a shirt and tie, should they wish. Also permitted is a plain black or white T-shirt, plain black jumper or cardigan.
