- About Woldgate
- Sixth Form
All pupils in Years 7 to 11 are required to wear full school uniform every day. We expect a high standard of appearance in all our pupils at all times. All staff, including Form Tutors, ensure that all pupils are wearing correct uniform at all times throughout the school day.
Our school uniform reflects our ethos that everything we do should be worthy of great merit, character and value. It is also reflects the pride pupils have in our school, and their own self-confidence as well as making an excellent impression upon the wider community.
All clothing must be clearly labelled with your child’s name and form so that it can be quickly returned in the event of it being lost or mislaid. Most of the school uniform items can be purchased from our school uniform shop, based in school.

Mid grey trousers should be formal, classic, smart trousers. They should be loose fitting (not skin tight) and plain (without brass zips, logos or studs on the pockets for instance). They should be waist height, so not to expose underwear. (Not leggings/treggings/jeans/cargo/chino in style).
They can be worn with a thin back belt if necessary (no fashion belts/large buckles).

Standard white, loose fitting shirt with stiff pointed collar (not open necked) to take tie; shirt must be long enough to be tucked in and wide enough at the neck to fasten the top button. Fashion shirts or blouses that include embroidery, logos, or slim collars that are not designed for a tie should not be worn.
Plain (no decoration), professional, black, low-heeled, sensible, full leather shoes with a plain black sole are appropriate for school. Trainers and plimsolls are not acceptable - as they are fashion items and do not protect the feet in Science or Design Technology lessons. Plain black, low heeled boots can be worn under trousers only. UGG-style boots are also a fashion item and should not be worn.
Plain white or black only. Socks must not be worn over tights and must cover ankles.
Plain (not patterned) and black in colour. Leggings are not permitted.
Discreet make-up is permitted. Excessive make-up will not be tolerated. No jewellery should be worn. If ears have been pierced, plain studs (3mm diameter – only one per ear) may be worn and removed for PE (only one pair of studs may be worn at any time). No other body piercing is allow. False nails must not be worn.
Pupils’ hair styles must be reasonable – we do not allow more extreme hair styles e.g. bright/multi-colours or Mohican cuts. Head scarves are not to be worn, except for religious reasons, and hair bands can only be worn if thin and black. Pupils considering a radical change of hairstyle should check with their Head of Care & Achievement in advance to ensure that it is within School guidelines.
We recommend a simple and inexpensive waterproof coat that completely covers the school blazer. Although hats and scarves are not part of the school uniform, they may be worn in very cold weather but they must be removed inside school buildings. Denim jackets, hoodies and branded jackets and coats must not be worn.
Pupils must wear black school shoes at all times during the school day, except for when they having PE lessons or taking part in extra-curricular sports activities. Shoes must be waterproof and should be polished regularly. During very cold or wet weather, pupils may wear waterproof boots to school but these must be changed for school shoes as soon as they arrive in school.
Full details of the Woldgate PE Kit can be found above, the majority of items can be purchased from the Woldgate Uniform Shop.
Indoor and outdoor training shoes must be purchased elsewhere.
Non marking sporting trainers (white soles) with laces, which are designed to support pupils’ feet during physical activity. Pupils are not permitted to wear school shoes, plimsoles, converse, vans and high tops.
