Bellerive was the first school in Liverpool to set the trend of kilts being worn as part of the school uniform. We are very proud of how our girls present themselves, both in school and in the local community. Their distinctive look regularly draws praise and admiration from visitors to the school and members of the public alike.
We insist on the uniform policy being followed very closely as we believe that it sets high levels of self-expectation. In doing so, it encourages among the girls a sense of pride and identity and high levels of self-expectation among the girls.
