Any extremes of clothing, footwear, make-up or hairstyles (natural hair colours only) are not appropriate for school.

No trainers, Vans, Canvas shoes or any other sort of footwear that is not a black leather business style shoe is allowed.

Skirts must only be the NWHS branded type.

Trousers with very tight-fitting legs, jeans, leggings, jeggings, jogging or tracksuits, pin-stripe or cords are not to be worn

No head gear to be worn (except for religious headdress).

No hand bags will be allowed and only sturdy backpacks will be allowed in school from September 2018

All items of clothes and other belongings should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.

We ask that parents monitor the condition of their child’s uniform and ensure that items, such as shoes, are replaced in good time.

Uniform is designed to give pupils a professional and business-like outlook. By removing branded items it also seeks to give a sense of belonging, team spirit and also reducing bullying.  

We want all our students to take pride in their school, and we believe that a professional looking uniform helps to focus minds on study.  

Full school uniform should be worn correctly on the way to school, throughout the school day, and on the journey home.

Policy for dealing with incorrect uniform

If a student arrives at school without an item of uniform, the following steps will be taken by the School:

  1. The student may be asked to purchase or borrow the item needed if this is available at the Student Support Office.
  2. If the student cannot borrow or purchase an item, parents will be contacted so that the student can be sent home to correct their uniform. Students will be able to return as soon as this is rectified.
  3. If parents cannot be contacted, the student will be placed in isolation until they are in correct uniform.
