Uniform List

In “Our Expectations of Pupils at KEHS” we make it very clear that girls should dress appropriately and smartly whilst at school, travelling to and from school and on the games field. Wearing the KEHS uniform with pride is part of a girl’s commitment to the community and is a sign of respect for and loyalty to the school.

All garments and other property, including purses, stationery, watches and calculators, must be clearly named. Regular checks take place in school to ensure all items are labelled.

Any queries about school uniform should be directed to the Head of Lower School.
