Uniform

Uniform at BWH

The school has full uniform to the end of Year 11. At BWH we believe that a smart and distinctive uniform worn neatly and tidily helps to instil pride and a sense of loyalty to the school, as well as being both practical and economical. All items of uniform except the school tie and blazer may be obtained at most department stores. The full range of uniform may be obtained from Crested Schoolwear (Stafford), and Trutex Schoolwear (Stone).

 All uniform, bags and PE kit must be clearly identified with your child’s name.

Parents are asked to ensure that their children wear suitable black shoes for school. (It is important that the soles of these shoes are such as will not damage wooden floors). Trainers are not suitable for ordinary school wear. Platform shoes and shoes with a high heel are not allowed because they are inconsistent with our uniform requirements and are dangerous from a health and safety point of view.
