Uniform

We place great emphasis on the appearance of our students, and uniform is an integral part of the custom and character of the school. Our expectation is that students not only wear school uniform but look smart when they are doing so.  Blazers should be worn at all times around the school site. 

Students have a responsibility to dress smartly and sensibly. The school’s dress code is constantly monitored during the course of the year.  Parents must be satisfied that any garments purchased for school conform to the uniform that has been negotiated and agreed.

Extreme hairstyles, including sculptured haircuts, and obviously dyed hair, features such as razored eyebrows, any facial and tongue piercing, jewellery and nail varnish are not permitted. Please remember: NO earrings, only discreet plain studs; one stud per ear (ear lobe only) is the maximum allowed. (To allow time for healing, we advise that ears should not be pierced during term-time). Only subtle use of make-up is permissible.  Boys should be clean-shaven. Tattoos are strictly forbidden.

In Years 7, 8, 9 & 10 blazers and skirts from the school supplier are compulsory. Year 11 still maintain the privilege of wearing a smart black business suit.

Please note that we allow students to wear clothes specified by religious observance.

As a safety precaution, necessary when moving around the school, shoes must have backs to them, i.e. no mules; also no training shoes, and no boots, and no heels higher than two inches.  Please do not wear stiletto-heeled shoes, as they damage floors and carpets.

There is no compulsory outdoor dress. Coats and jackets should be smart. Denim jackets, tracksuit tops and jackets with large logos and hoods are not acceptable.  Outdoor dress, including scarves, should not be worn inside classrooms.

NOTE: Full school uniform should be worn both to and from school.

Sixth Form

First impressions are the ones which most influence people’s opinions about an individual. If that impression is not good, it is often impossible to correct.  At Waddesdon we believe that image is important, which is why we expect Sixth Form students to set the standards for the rest of the school.  As a member of the Waddesdon Sixth Form, you will be expected to maintain a high standard of personal presentation by observing the Sixth Form Dress Code.

For boys, this means wearing a suit with a shirt and tie. For girls, this means wearing a trouser suit, suit skirt and jacket, or a smart dress and jacket, with a shirt or plain top.  Skirts and dresses must be an appropriate length and design as deemed by the Head of Sixth Form for school. and Facial piercings and excessive jewellery for boys and girls are not allowed. Boys must not grow facial hair unless for religious observance.

Sportswear

All clothing/equipment should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

Health and Safety requirements dictate that no sleeper-type earrings/studs (often used after initial piercing) are permitted to be worn in PE lessons and hence our advice that ears should not be pierced during term-time.
