WHITBY HIGH SCHOOL THE Home
SIXTH FORM CONTACT US

The school has very high standards of uniform. Please see the table below for guidance. It is vital that parents/carers work with the school to maintain these high standards. If unsure about uniform, please contact the relevant House at school. This will help to avoid expensive mistakes.


Please pay special attention to the rules about shoes and hair. Fashions change all of the time and this can cause grey areas to materialise. Avoid buying ‘hybrid’ or trainer-type shoes - shoes must be smart. Keep to natural colour with hair and ensure it is a grade 2 or above at the back and sides or a grade 3 or above all over. If in doubt, seek advice or delay purchases.
