School Uniform

Thank you to our uniform suppliers for their continued support and dedication to ensuring our uniform is both affordable and environmentally friendly.

At Wickersley Partnership Trust, we strongly believe that our school uniform should be inclusive, cost-effective and ethical. To coincide with the Government’s guidance on uniform affordability, we held a uniform consultation across our five secondary schools in 2023, which involved a variety of stakeholders – students, parents, staff and others. Our aim was to ensure that no matter which of our secondary schools a child attends, they would have the same uniform at the same cost, whilst maintaining the school’s identity.


The outcome of this consultation, which will be implemented for September 2024, saw 53.2% of all responses in favour of V-neck jumpers / cardigans.

Uniform Bank

At a time when a lot of families are tightening their belts, we’re aware that many could benefit from a little extra support when it comes to buying school uniforms and other essentials – such as coats and PE kits – that children need for school. That’s why we’ve created a Trust-wide Uniform Bank of good quality, new and used items – providing a sustainable way to recycle and repurpose school uniforms.


This scheme also gives families – who have unwanted uniforms and items – the opportunity to make a difference to other children and help the environment by donating items and ultimately reducing the amount of waste that ends up in bins and landfill.


The WPT Uniform Bank is located at WPT’s Headquarters. Generously donated items are laundered, catalogued and stored – and families are able to access the bank completely free of charge through the school and Trust website, where they can place item requests.


Items include:


  • School jumpers / cardigans
  • Polo shirts
  • Trousers
  • School approved skirts
  • Ties
  • Gingham dresses
  • Coats
  • PE kits
  • Bags


The items will then be ready to collect from school. However, due to our commitment to ensure that every family can easily access the bank – and do so without any stigma – we will also run community collection points and deliver items when necessary.


Collection drives and requests


Of course none of this would be possible without the help of our Trust communities and families – here’s where we’re asking for support.


Easily accessible collection bins will open at each of our schools during the last week of each term.


During the week, families will be able to bring or send items into school and simply place them into the bins – we’ll take care of the rest! Families who are physically unable to get donations to school can let us know on operations@wickersleypt.org and we can arrange to collect them.


Items that we are unable to make use of will be passed on to charities for their use.


Families are welcome to make requests from the Uniform Bank at any time in the year (including during the school holidays). However, each time we complete a collection drive, after we have sorted, laundered and catalogued the items collected, we will contact all families to remind them that the Uniform Bank is stocked and ready for requests.
