Grasmere is a non uniform school. We ask that all children are sent with sensible footwear appropriate for running around (no sandals, and flip flops). All coats and clothing should be clearly labelled with children’s names to easily return if lost.

All children from Reception upwards have swimming lessons. Children will need a swimming costume or trunks (not below the knees or loose) and towel. Clissold Pool require all children to wear a swimming cap. These can be provided by the school.
