School Uniform

We believe smartly presented students learn better. They are less distracted and therefor more able to focus on learning. We expect all students to wear their uniform smartly and present a good impression to our local community. When students wear the Whitecross uniform, the whole city knows they belong to us! It is important students behave in a way that makes us all proud when they are wearing our uniform.

Our uniform supplier is:

The School Uniform Shop,10a St Peter's Square, Hereford. HR1 2LE.

Whitecross does not allow any facial piercings including nose and eyebrow piercings. If a student has any such piercings, they will be asked to remove the earring, even if the hole grows over.
