Starred (*) items are available at Mansuri Schoolwear.

There should be no makeup, surma, nail varnish, contact lenses or jewellery other than one pair of small plain gold or silver stud earrings and a watch. If any make-up is worn students will be asked to remove it immediately.

School Bag

These must be sensible school bags such as backpacks. Handbags and fashion bags etc. are not allowed.

Outdoor wear

Outdoor wear must consist of a plain black, grey or navy coat/jacket. Jackets/coats must be knee length. Coats that are made of denim or corduroy are not acceptable.

Optional: Jilbaab

A jilbaab is not part of the School uniform. However, we understand that some pupils wish to wear one as it is part of their usual dress. As a student of Al-Burhan Grammar School, it is mandatory to attend school wearing the school uniform regardless of whether it is covered by a jilbaab or not.

If a jilbaab is worn, it must be loose, of a simple cut, plain, and black or navy in colour.
