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 to 11 blazers and skirts from the school supplier are compulsory. Year 11 have a separate school tie.
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.

As a member of the Waddesdon Sixth Form, students are expected to maintain a high standard of personal presentation by observing the Sixth Form Dress Code. For young men, this means wearing a suit with a shirt and tie. For young woman, this means wearing a suit jacket, with a smart dress, trousers or skirt. Skirts and dresses must be an appropriate length and style for school as deemed by the Head of Sixth Form. Young men may grow facial hair as long as it is kept neatly trimmed. Students who have a nose piercing may wear a small, plain silver or gold stud. Hair must be a natural colour.
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.
