Uniform and Equipment

At Westborough we have very high standards, and that begins with personal presentation – we have a uniform, including a blazer, for all pupils. We believe this is important for three reasons:

  • There is less pressure on parents to buy the latest fashions.
  • There are fewer distractions – pupils are here to learn.
  • It fosters a sense of pride in the school.

The official stockist of our uniform is Rawcliffes in Dewsbury:
