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 the expectation high levels of behaviour. In doing so, it encourages among the girls a sense of pride and identity.
A green blazer with a school badge (compulsory for all pupils.
A plain black full length or 3/4 length overcoat or raincoat may be worn to and from school.
No logos or designer wear allowed. Short jackets are not allowed. Denim, fur, leather or suede coats/jackets real or imitation may not be worn to or from school or in school.
