Our school uniform is important to us.  It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos, setting an appropriate tone and instilling pride in our school.

Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.

At Wellfield Academy, we believe that a school uniform is important, because it:

  • Looks smart
  • Wears well
  • Contributes to a sense of belonging
  • Gives a common purpose
  • Fosters a feeling of pride
  • Reduces ‘fashion competition’ between students
  • Prepares students for the world of work.

All students should wear the uniform and we encourage them to maintain an acceptable standard of clean and tidy dress in school.  It reflects the needs of the cultural traditions represented at Wellfield High School. It is readily available and inexpensive.
