Uniform

We have high expectations of all students at Soar Valley and standards of uniform are no exception.  The uniform is simple and smart, and we expect all students to wear it.  It is important to note that this is a uniform not a dress code; items of clothing must therefore conform exactly to the uniform. Uniform items are available from Uniform Direct, online or through the retail outlet in Leicester city centre.
