Westlands School Uniform

Westlands School has an enviable reputation for the high standard of appearance of its pupils, a reputation of which the school is very proud, and one that is often favourably commented upon by members of the general public and local employers.

All Westlands pupils are therefore expected to maintain this high standard by coming to school smartly dressed in their full school uniform and wearing it in the required style. All items of uniform worn to school must be of conventional school style appropriate for formal school wear and clearly marked with the owner's name. Clothing must not include fashion items. Clothes, or any other item that a pupil brings to school, should not portray any inappropriate logos or wording. No jewellery is permitted in school. Jewellery will be confiscated and given to the main office for collection after school. If parents have any doubts about what may be inappropriate, they should contact the Learning Leader.
