*****UPDATE JULY 2018****
Click here for an update with regard to skirts
Woodkirk Academy has a very clear dress code. It is important that we maintain our high standards of dress. As such, we would like to clarify the existing uniform policy regarding trousers and shoes. Any updates will be in place from September 2018 so please bear this in mind when purchasing new items from this point on.
As a reminder, which was communicated to parents last year, shoes for boys and girls must be black leather only, with any branded label being extremely discreet (see photo example). Shoes must be plain black including the laces (if applicable) and soles etc. Discreet decorative elements will be allowed (buckles/bows etc), preferably black to match the shoes (see photos).
Please be aware that there is additional wording to our trouser policy which provides greater clarity, particularly for girls. Trousers must be straight leg or boot cut, not excessively tight below the knee. Trousers that cling to the lower leg are not suitable and, therefore, not allowed. Fashion trousers designed to cling to the leg are not acceptable school wear. Skinny fit or tapered trousers are not allowed. Trousers should have a waistband and a traditional zip. Zips anywhere else on the trousers are not suitable eg pockets. For any clarification, please refer to the photos for further guidance.
