At St Wilfrid’s, we are proud of the standards of the Academy uniform which our students continue to achieve. The attitude, behaviour, appearance and success of the vast majority of our students makes them excellent ambassadors for the Academy. The maintenance of these standards, of course, requires constant vigilance on the part of both parents and staff. We greatly appreciate the splendid cooperation we receive from the majority of our parents.

We are also grateful to our principle suppliers, Grays and Whittakers, for their support in maintaining standards and ask that parents should be careful in buying from other suppliers, lest they purchase articles that are of incorrect design and inferior quality.
