Our school uniform helps to promote a school culture which provides all students with a fundamental sense of belonging and helps develop within each student a sense of personal identity which is linked to their commitment to the school community. Our uniform reflects the positive image and values that we as a school want to demonstrate to the wider community. A consistent and fair uniform policy improves overall student morale and student cohesion in the school community. Students at Dhahran British Grammar School are therefore expected to maintain a high standard of personal grooming at all times. The school uniform is a cornerstone of our discipline policy and helps us maintain high standards of behaviours and achievement.
