A welcome from Mrs Angus, our Principal.

We’re part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, a family of 11 schools around Leicestershire and Kath Kelly, the CEO, would like to welcome you to the Lionheart Family too.

Your uniform

At Sir Jonathan North we believe a smart, business-like uniform helps create a sense of unity and pride in the school. A coloured lanyard is also part of the uniform, with each year group having their own colour.

Our uniform consists of a black blazer and / or jumper with the school logo on it; a white shirt or blouse with a collar; a black pleated knee length skirt, a black modesty skirt or business style black trousers.  If you wear a headscarf, it should be plain black or white.

Uniform is ordered through Schoolwear Solutions and you can find more information on our uniform here.
