At Sir Thomas Wharton Academy, we have the highest standards: students take pride in their uniform and wear it consistently to the highest standard.

On this page, you will find our uniform expectations, and a letter detailing where specific uniform items can be purchased from.

We do have a stock of uniform items at the Academy that have kindly been donated for us to keep a second hand store of uniform items should any student need them.  Please ask at Reception or speak to your child's Pastoral member of staff.

Our full uniform expectations can be viewed by clicking on the picture below

Hairstyles: Must always be reasonable and tidy, bright colours as a result of dye or spray, marked contrast in hair length or colour are not acceptable; neither are extreme styles such as close shaves (e.g. Mohican styles or lines/patterns). Long hair should be tied back in any practical situations, such as Physical Education, Dance, Drama, Science and Technology or at the discretion of staff. A small, plain black hair slide, band, clip or ‘bobble ‘is acceptable, but any other ‘hair ornament’ is not permitted. Hair extensions are also not permitted of any length

Make-Up: Make-up should not be noticeable and should always be light, natural looking and discreet. Dark highlighted eyebrows, bright-coloured lipstick, dark foundation, highlighter, fake tan, painted nails, nail extensions, gel nails or false eyelashes are not allowed to be worn under any circumstances.
