Uniforms and Dress Code

At the Halifax Grammar School, our students are welcome to dress casually on most days of the year, while respecting a dress code that requires them to wear clothing appropriate to the occasion, and to the institution. Although uniforms are not worn every day, there is an official School Dress for specified formal occasions such as guest speakers, special events, assemblies, and when representing Grammar on campus or in the community.
