Uniform Expectations

It is important that all students feel a sense of pride in belonging to our school. Our policy around uniform reflects statutory guidance. It is our expectation that all students wear our full uniform every day. 

The uniform consists of:

  • A blue blazer with red crest (branded/required)
  • Blue V necked with grey stripe Wellacre jumper (branded/required)
  • Wellacre Academy tie - KS3 and KS4 (branded/required)
  • A dark waterproof coat (recommended) 
  • Dark grey trousers (non-branded/required) 
  • Plain white shirt (non-branded/required)
  • Black shoes (no trainers, canvas shoes, boots or shoes with white stripes or trainer soles)(non-branded/required)

The PE kit consists of:

• Royal blue Wellacre t-shirt (branded/required)
• Royal blue Wellacre shorts (branded/required)
• Royal blue Wellacre socks (branded/required)
• A dark blue Wellacre fleece for colder days (branded/recommended) 
• Trainers and football boots (any make or colour required) 

The following items are banned:

• Sports tops, hooded tops and any other garment that is in addition to the Wellacre uniform
• Trainers except for wearing during PE lessons. Students wearing trainers will be told to change back into shoes. 

Suitable school shoes in good condition will be offered as an alternative to any student without shoes of their own. Students will be expected to wear them.

PE Kit:

PE kit must be brought on all days when timetabled for PE. If a student is injured or ill then they are expected to bring their PE kit and a note from home detailing the injury/illness. Pupils will be expected to change into PE kit and assist in the lesson, they can still access the learning without taking part in the physical aspects that may affect the injury. At no point will pupils be forced to take part when injured but if they fail to bring PE kit then they will receive sanctions as per departmental policy. By changing into PE kit their uniform will be protected from the inclement weather.

Marking Of Clothing:

It is essential that all items of clothing, football boots and even trainers, should all be clearly marked with the owner’s name to avoid unnecessary additional expenditure for lost items. Lost property is kept in the Office. 


Earrings, and other piercings, are not allowed. We expect our students to wear clean uniform and be sensible in their choice of hair colour and style. 


Uniform can be purchased from the following:

  • Monkhouse who have an outlet in Stretford Arndale or online.

  • Elite School uniforms on Manchester Road, M16 ODZ -  £85.00 offer on branded/required uniform bundle here

Recycled Uniform:

Every year we request that parents/carers return unwanted items of uniform in good condition. We provide opportunities throughout the year for parents/carers to acquire uniform in this way, in order to reduce costs and contribute to our efforts around sustainability.
