  • Black box pleat skirt - length close to knee

All students are expected to wear plain black leather low heeled shoes (not backless/canvas/boots/ trainers) with plain black, grey or white socks/ plain black, grey or neutral tights. If socks are worn on top of tights, the socks are to be the same colour as the tights, i.e., black, grey or neutral.

Further Uniform Details

A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and anyone arriving at School in non-uniform clothing should expect to be sent home to change or be put in isolation.

  • Cardigans and hoodies are not to be worn in school at any time.

Sweatshirt

 

  • Skirts should be the box-pleated style and should be no shorter than knee length; it is not appropriate for our girls to wear short skirts.

  • Trousers and skirts are to be regulation style as in the photos. Trousers must be tailored, no jeans, leggings or jeggings are permitted.
  • Logo belts are NOT part of the Wavell uniform and must not be worn. Only black leather belts can be worn.
  • The uniform dress code is for black shoes, not trainers or boots. Trainers should only be worn for P.E. lessons, though students may choose to wear trainers to take part in sporting activities during social times (break/lunchtime). However, students must arrive on time to each lesson in their appropriate footwear, and should not have to be asked to change back into shoes at any point. Backless and canvas shoes are not safe enough in a school with so many stairs and laboratories. Footwear with designs and trade names are not to be worn.

Shoes

  • Jewellery is not to be worn apart from one pair of studs (no hoops and only one stud in each ear lobe) and a watch. Bracelets, rings and necklaces should not be worn at any point in school and can be confiscated and logged in the School safe at Reception. Facial, ear cartilage and tongue piercings are not allowed at the Wavell School.
  • Extreme haircuts are not appropriate for school, hair should not be coloured/patterned or in “Steps”/“Dip dyed”/“Tramlines”. Grade 3 haircuts are the shortest accepted at school.
  • We prefer students not to wear make-up; if it is deemed necessary it must be “natural” and staff have the right to request excessive make up is removed including drawn-on eye brows/fake tan and false eye lashes.
  • Coloured nail varnish and acrylic nails must not be worn. Gels and extensions are not safe in school and must be removed.
  • Scarves and pashminas are outdoor clothing and need to be removed on entering the classroom.
  • Music players, Bluetooth® speakers and Smart Watches are not permitted in School. Although mobile phones are permitted, these must be switched off during the School day and kept in the student’s school bag at all times. The School reserves the right to confiscate valuables, phones, and music players if they are being used during the School Day.

 Sanctions

  • Anyone arriving at School in non-uniform clothing should expect to be sent home to change or be put in isolation.
  • Any jewellery other than a watch and one pair of small studs (one in each ear lobe only)will be confiscated and logged in the School Safe at Reception.
  • Coloured nail varnish and acrylic nails should not be worn and students will be asked to remove them. There may need to be temporary exclusion from practical lessons because of health and safety risks.
  • Science and D & T practical lessons will not go ahead for students without correct footwear.
