Our school uniform reflects the feedback from hundreds of parents and pupils, and represents West Exe School as the Ofsted-rated good school that it is – and the outstanding school that we all aspire for it to become. It combines smartness with functionality and durability. Parents/guardians are strongly advised to pay particular attention to the uniform details attached, and to take expert advice from staff at Thomas Moore, as only the items exactly as specified will be acceptable.
Students are expected to wear their full uniform with pride. This includes on their way to School and home. Those wearing incomplete uniform or non-approved items risk internal isolation or being sent home until the matter is resolved.
