Uniform

Welcome to the School Shop webpage, since September 2009 the Royal Grammar School has been supplying uniform, stationery and memorabilia from our on-site shop. We have found that by selling these items in-house we can offer a convenient location, a personal service, and are able to keep prices at competitive and affordable rates.

RGS SCHOOL SHOP and HAWKINSPORT (Bourne End) are the official suppliers of our standard branded uniform and sports kit (ie. all clothing with our current logo).  Parents are strongly advised not to purchase embroidered uniform or sports kit from other retailers, unless purchasing specific sports "TEAM" kit, recommended by our Sports Staff. The School cannot be held responsible for purchases outside these recommended suppliers (colours, price and styles may differ from our current official uniform and kit).
