School Uniform

School Uniform 

All pupils at Winchelsea School are expected to wear school uniform.  We believe that the school uniform helps to promote a sense of school identity and encourages pupils to take a pride in their appearance.                                           

Our uniform consists of: 

  1. Main Site School Uniform 
  • Plain royal blue polo shirt
  • Plain royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan
  • Plain royal blue fleece 

 The above items must bear the school logo and can be purchased online from the school’s uniform supplier: 


Full, plain black appropriate footwear with no trimmings or add-ons.

  • Plain grey or black skirts, trousers or shorts. 
  • Blue and white striped or check dresses can be worn in the summer.
  • Plain socks appropriate to the uniform being worn.
  1. Physical Education Kit

A clearly named PE Bag containing: plimsolls or trainers without black soles, spare socks, blue or black tracksuit, plain blue t-shirt and plain blue shorts (not tight fitting lycra).

  1. Swimming Kit

A clearly named Swimming Bag containing  the following items and a swimming hat and towel in a waterproof bag: 

Costumes: We ask that boys wear swimming trunks which should not come below the knee and that girls wear a plain, appropriate, one piece swimming costumes. 

Goggles: Goggles will only be allowed if chemicals in the water may adversely affect your child’s eyes. Goggles should be made of unbreakable plastic or rubber materials and children should be taught to use them correctly and safely prior to their attendance at the pool.
