School Uniforms - Upper School

Upper School Uniforms

The Bryn Mawr School has a uniform that is worn by all students and allows various options and combinations. Bryn Mawr’s guidelines about appearance are based on the belief that students should arrive on campus dressed neatly and appropriately for a school setting.
 
Students are expected to wear clean, neat, well-fitting uniforms and to own all parts of the required uniform, which is worn for Founders Day, Thanksgiving Convocation, Class Day, the Cum Laude Ceremony, Department Awards Assembly, and other special occasions. No team uniforms are to be worn on these days.
 
Students begin the academic year in the fall/spring uniform. The fall uniform is worn until Thanksgiving break, after which begins a one-week transition for either uniform. By the following week, all students should be in winter uniform. Students will transition back to the spring uniform after spring break.

Fall/Spring Uniform

Winter Uniform

  • Scarves, hats (including baseball caps), and gloves constitute as outerwear and, therefore, may not be worn in the classroom or convocation.
