At Viewforth High School we recognise that one major aspect of a successful school is that pupils have a strong set of values which include a recognised pride in their school and a respect for their community. Our values of care, ambition, respect and equity underpin this. Alongside high attainment, achievement and good behaviour, the wearing of school uniform is a major influence on how the community and others perceive a school and the calibre of its young people. It is also a mechanism to promote equity amongst pupils.
The Viewforth High School uniform consists of:
S1-3 Plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and school tie, a black sweatshirt with the school badge or a black v-neck jumper or cardigan and black shoes or plain black trainers.
S4-6 Plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and school tie, a black sweatshirt with the school badge or a black v-neck jumper or cardigan and black shoes or plain black trainers. In addition, all S4, S5 and S6 pupils wear a blazer and there will be an opportunity to be measured for blazers in the new term.
