School Life

SCHOOL UNIFORM

At Wombourne High School we believe that a smart uniform helps to instil pride and a sense of loyalty to the school. In the long run it is both practical and economical. The blazer, trousers, tie, and badges PE kit are stocked by Abbiss in Wombourne (Follow this link for their Facebook page).

 

OUTDOOR WEAR

We do not insist on any particular design or colour of coat or anorak but we would prefer them to be as dark and as plain as possible, and for any logo to be as small as possible.

Denim and leather jackets, track suit tops and hooded or other sweatshirts (‘Hoodies’) are NOT to be worn.

 

INDOOR WEAR

We encourage the naming of all outer articles of clothing, including tie. This will help staff to identify those left behind at the end of lessons or to identify the owner when items are handed into ‘lost property’.
