In fact the dungarees are not only distinctive, they are also practical (especially for tree climbing) comfortable and informal —they are also hugely popular with the girls.
There is also a best uniform of gingham shirt, red jumper and grey skirt, while at the weekends girls wear whatever they like. In Alpha (Year 8) girls finally hang up their dungarees in favour of skirts and jumpers but they do not throw them away. It is the tradition for the whole school to sign the leavers’ dungarees. Generations of Old Knightonians still treasure their signed dungarees.
