School uniforms at SSHL – 2018/2019

SSHL policy on school uniforms:

As part of the SSHL community, all students should wear correct school uniform at school, to strengthen the community and to emphasize the similarity between the students instead of the differences. We believe that a school uniform also may dampen the compulsion towards fashion and brand trends.

At specific times, and for important, formal school days, wearing uniform is mandatory and we trust that students will wear their uniform correctly with pride. The uniform is to be worn on Wednesdays, at the school start, Open House, Lucia, on the end of term ceremonies and other days which will be announced in time. The uniform should be worn the whole school day. Individual exceptions may be granted by the school management. No cap may be worn together with the school uniform. If a student does not wear their uniform correctly, a warning will be given and if repeated parents will be informed.

School uniforms can be purchased/rented/borrowed from the school´s shop on campus, UTIS, and consist of:

  • Dark-blue jacket
  • Grey trousers or skirt
  • White blouse or shirt
  • School tie or school scarf
  • Black leather shoes or boots
  • Black socks/black or nude stockings
  • A navy, maroon or grey school sweater/slipover may be worn under the jacket

Uniform fittings for day students (externs):

Tisdag 21 aug, Onsdag 22 aug:

New boarding students are given a separate uniform fitting schedule on arrival.

  1. All students have the opportunity to borrow (deposit fee 300 SEK/garment) their school uniform during their time at SSHL.
  2. Rental of jacket + purchase of trousers/skirt, tie (800 SEK). For this option you keep your trousers/skirt/tie and return the jacket.
  3. Purchase of second-hand jacket (800 SEK – directly to the seller of the garment).
  4. Purchase of an entire school uniform (trousers/skirt/tie and jacket – 2350SEK)

Please note:

  • if you borrow a jacket you may not make any sewing changes.
