At The Wilmslow Academy we feel that school uniform looks smart, wears well and contributes to a feeling of 'belonging' to the school. All clothing should be clearly marked with the child's name.

  • Uniform:
  • grey skirt/pinafore dress or grey trousers/shorts
  • red cardigan/sweatshirt/sweater
  • white blouse/shirt or red/white polo shirt
  • in Summer red gingham or striped dresses can be worn
  • white/red/grey/black socks or tights
  • black/brown school shoes or boots in winter

We have a policy on the wearing of earrings and advise you that only studs are allowed. Children must remove them for PE, unless it is during the period when they have just had their ears pierced. Please note that jewellery, nail varnish and false nails are not allowed.Hair accessories are allowed in the following colours; red, grey, white or black. Extreme hairstyles are not allowed, this includes shaving or cutting designs/patterns into the hair.

Also the children will need:

  • P.E.shorts, T shirt and gym shoes/trainers (P.E. shirts are worn in the colour of the house each child belongs to). In colder weather children are welcome to bring sweatshirts/hoodies,jogging bottoms/leggings. These do not need to be in school uniform or house colours.
