Uniform

Please note that in line with the government guidance we are requesting that all visitors to Printworks, the Express Pop-Up Shop or Second-hand Uniform Shop, wear a face covering. 

It is vitally important that all of our students attend school smartly dressed. We therefore expect all students to adhere to the school dress code. 

We are frequently complimented on how good our students look in the community and we see no reason why this should not continue to be the case. Consequently students are expected to come to and go home from school in full uniform.  

Wearing PE kit to school (on PE days) from September 2021

During the period of the Covid-19 pandemic we have not been using the changing rooms, as a whole class cannot use them and remain socially distanced. As a result, currently all students travel to and from school in their PE kit on the days that they have PE lessons.

This has been popular because it has brought extra benefits such as increasing the amount of PE lesson time spent on activities rather than on getting changed at the beginning and end of the lesson.

From September 2021, as you may be aware, work will start on our £12 million building programme designed to upgrade our specialist facilities, add classrooms and improve the social areas around school. As this will also put changing room space under pressure for 12 months, we have decided to maintain the following uniform/PE kit arrangements from September onwards (please note that a blazer must be worn with PE kit by all students):

  • Wear PE kit to school on PE lesson days: all students will travel to and from school in their WHS PE kit (and stay in kit for the duration of the day) on days when they have a practical PE lesson, or when they plan to attend an after-school extra- curricular sports practice
  • Changing space available after lessons if requested: all students will have the opportunity to change into spare WHS PE kit or their school uniform after their PE lesson, if they wish to, although the majority of students choose to stay in their PE kit for the duration of the day
  • Blazers to be worn every day: on days when students wear their PE kit, a blazer must also be worn over the PE kit – this is a compulsory item to be worn on every day of the week
  • Only PE kit items detailed on the school website can be worn: the exception being non-WHS plain black tracksuit trousers. Girls may choose to wear black leggings (which are sold in Printworks).
  • Girls can wear the WHS ‘skort’, WHS shorts or WHS leggings for PE lessons
  • Hooded tops (as a coat or a PE item) and sweatshirts are not permitted to be worn to school or for PE lessons: students who own a WHS branded hooded top or sweatshirt can only wear these items at after-school practices, not around school or in PE lessons.
