Uniform is compulsory for all pupils at DSLV.

Through our uniform we hope to achieve:

  • equality
  • value for money
  • comfort and smartness
  • safety
  • some choice within clear guidelines
  • We also hope to ensure that students are not fashion victims at school thus reducing pressure on pupils to compete and parents to buy expensive items.
