School Uniform

Pride in Belonging

We believe that uniform is important in contributing to the ethos of the school and in setting an appropriate tone. It supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for, SGS Forest High School.

Our uniform is supplied by Monkhouse Schoolwear in Gloucester.  Orders can be placed online using the link below, by telephone on 0161 476 7216 or in person at 99 Northgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 2AA.

The only uniform item not available from Monkhouse is the Key Stage 4 tie.  Parents and carers of students in Years 10 and 11 should buy this tie from the school, via ParentPay.

Open Uniform Shop

Any family that is concerned about the cost of uniform should get in touch with us.  We will do all we can to help.
