Can children wear shoes with laces instead of Velcro?

Children can wear shoes with laces only if they are able to tie their shoes independently.

However, for safety purposes, we strongly recommend to send students to school with velcro shoes.

 

“Both of our children have been so happy at The Winchester School it is unbelievable! The caring and structured environment has done wonders to help our children grow and learn to love learning! The Winchester School’s educational tradition is enviable; we wish more schools could be inspired…”

"If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders."
