Lewes Old Grammar's distinctive maroon uniform gives way to smart new grey look
9:23am Tuesday 11th March 2014 in News
The famous maroon uniform worn by pupils at Lewes Old Grammar for decades will disappear at the end of this academic year.
From September a new grey uniform will replace the deep red sported by students since before the Second World War.
Tim Laker, operations manager at Lewes Old Grammar School, said: “It was time for a smart, contemporary look for our students.”
Former pupil and artist Rupert Denyer has also designed a new school crest incorporating a lion rampant with an eight crosses crosslet, representing Lewes Priory.
It will feature on all uniforms, including the revamped sports kits, for all pupils in the school.
Mr Denyer said: “The crest has to be historically accurate. So there were tight specifications to work with.
“It was wonderful to work on such a prestigious and unusual project, and the fact that it was for my old school was an added bonus.”
