At West Calder High School we recognise that school uniform helps to develop a strong sense of identity and a recognised pride in the school and school values. 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.
All pupils from S1 through to S6 are expected to wear school uniform.
The West Calder High School uniform was agreed after consultation with parents and pupils and consists of:
- S1-4 Plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and black tie with broad red stripes, a black v-necked jumper or cardigan and plain black shoes.
- S5 West Calder High School blazer, plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and black tie with thin red stripe, a black v-necked jumper or cardigan and plain black shoes.
- S6 West Calder High School blazer, plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and red tie with the school logo, a black v-necked jumper or cardigan and plain black shoes.
