Polo Shirt with the Wadham Logo

These are red.  Only polo shirts with the school logo on them are acceptable.  No t-shirt is to be worn visibly under the polo shirt.

School Sweatshirt or V neck Jumper with Wadham Logo

These are black. The sweatshirt is available with either a crew-neck or a v-neck and a v-neck jumper is available for girls if preferred. Only sweatshirts and jumpers with the school logo on them are acceptable.

Please note that all of the above items are available for purchase or order from the school uniform shop. 

Plain, Black, Straight-Legged Trousers with a Waistband

They must be smart in appearance and without slits or any form of ornamentation.  In addition, the hem of the trousers should not drag on the ground, nor should the waist be worn so low as to cause this to happen.  They must be long enough to cover the ankle.  “Combat” or “skinny” or “jeans” style are not acceptable.  Denim canvas trousers are not allowed.  Any trouser made from stretch materials (eg elastic or lycra) or having the appearance of leggings or jeggings are not allowed.


These must be worn with trousers.  These must be black and long enough to cover the ankle.  Trainer type socks are not acceptable.

Plain, Black Skirt of Sensible Length (the shortest length acceptable is just above the knee)

Denim or canvas skirts or any skirt made from an elastic/lycra type material are not allowed. Fashion skirts with zips at the back are not suitable.

Plain Black Belt - broad or narrow fashion belts are not acceptable

Shoes must be black and of a sensible, flat style

Heels should not be more than two inches (5cm). Open-toed shoes, mules and slingback styles are not allowed. No trainers, canvas shoes or boots above the ankle can be worn.

Outer garments

In poor weather, it is expected that students will want to wear a jacket or coat as an outer garment when outside.  Please note that these should not be denim.

Summer Term Only  -  Shorts
After the Easter Holiday, during the Summer Term only, students may choose to wear on any day, tailored shorts, instead of full-length trousers or skirts.  For clarity, these shorts must be:

  • Black with no other markings or symbols
  • Of the same material and style as the permitted full-length trousers.  Sport shorts or similar do not meet this requirement.  Cutting down the ordinary trousers is acceptable, as long as the hem is neatly finished.
  • Their length should be no longer than the knee and no more than 10cm above the knee.
