Last year we had a parental consultation regarding uniform, the Academy Council stated that they would review the situation with regard to the adoption of an official school trouser in 12 months’ time. St Wilfrid’s has a long-standing reputation in the local community for being a school that is well respected for its high standards. The high standards of uniform expectations, with regard to wearing tailored school trousers has not been maintained and as a result, the Academy Councillors have made the decision to introduce an official school trouser from September 2019.
From 1st July 2019, the official St Wilfrid’s school trousers with a logo can only be purchased via the Trutex website, which will be linked to the school website. The deadline for purchasing trousers in time for September 2019 will be 4th August to guarantee delivery. More information will follow including price lists etc. Please note that you will also be able to purchase other items as well, including the official school skirt, blazers and shirts.
Working together we can encourage a professional environment, preparing our young people for the world of work and employability.
