Our bespoke uniform has great historical significance and the striking black, red and gold PGS colours are easily recognised throughout the city and surrounding areas.  Complemented by the ever-present PGS Lion, our uniform is available to purchase through our own dedicated Uniform Shop situated in the heart of the school, just off the main Quad. 

Requests for variation in school uniform

The Portsmouth Grammar School is a Christian non-denominational school welcoming pupils of all faiths and none.  Parents should be aware that all pupils at The Portsmouth Grammar School are required to wear a uniform.  The Head will consider written requests from parents for variations in the uniform on religious or medical grounds that are consistent with the school’s ethos and its policy on health and safety.  The Head may take expert advice, and arrange to meet with the parents to discuss the implications of such a request.

The links below take you to the uniform requirements, including guidance on how our uniform should be worn.
