UNIFORM

Pupils are proud to wear the Highworth Warneford uniform and as such we understand all parents’ desire to ensure that their young people come to school in the correct uniform.  If you have any queries with your child’s uniform please address them to their tutor in the first instance.

A smart and tidy appearance is considered important.  Hair should be tidy and extremes of fashion will not be permitted. 

School uniform is a simple and fair way of setting a high standard. Items have been chosen as far as possible to be easy to obtain and relatively simple and inexpensive. Uniform and sports kit can be ordered from Trutex Direct or The Famous Branches and the stock codes are detailed below. The school uniform is available from either supplier all the year round. You can order from Trutex Direct online, by telephone or by post.  The Famous Branches shop, at Unit 1B, Plaza 21, Sanford Street, Swindon stocks uniform all year round and they also offer ordering by phone, post or via their own online service, delivery options include collection from the store.  The Trutex Direct catalogue and The Famous Branches information are available from the school office throughout the year.   The Trutex Direct catalogue can also be viewed online using the following link Trutex Direct brochure
