Academy Uniform

Following the recent announcement by the Government to allow a partial re-opening of some shops, Uniform Direct have been able to offer a limited opening of their stores. Please see the attachment at the foot of this page for full details. May we remind you to always check before travelling to avoid disappointment. The following guidance is still correct:

  • Uniform Direct will continue to offer all parents the opportunity to order online.
  • We recommend that any parents wishing to make contact with us directly should do so initially by email through  
  • We have taken off the delivery charge for all orders over £25 to further assist those parents who wish to purchase uniform online during this period.
  • There will be regular updates on our website as further announcements are made by the Government.

Please be assured that they are fully stocked with uniform ready for the September 2020 intake and schools and parents can be confident that all of this year’s stock has either arrived already or is due to arrive with us very shortly, the global situation has not affected us as we always order early to ensure all products are fully stocked in advance for our schools and parents.

Essential Equipment

All students must ensure that they have the following equipment with them every day:

  • Pencil case
  • Black or blue writing pens
  • Pencils
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
  • Colouring pencils
  • Scientific calculator (Casio fx 83 or 85 'GT plus' is recommended)
  • Planner
  • Reading book
  • Glue stick


The expectation is that students wear their uniform correctly and with pride when travelling to and from the Academy.

On Educational Visits, if non-uniform is permitted, students should wear smart trousers or skirts and appropriate tops, shirts or blouses with no offensive logos. It should be remembered that on such excursions the students are representing the Academy and their appearance should reflect that.

The Academy discourages students from wearing high-value items of clothing/jewellery or bringing expensive technology onto site. Should they choose to do this, they do so at their own risk. 

Uniform – Compulsory Items


Navy blue with Academy badge*

From August 2020 students will be given a House Badge by the Academy to wear on their blazer. This will be a compulsory part of their uniform.

Plain black (straight, classic style – no stretch fabrics, turn ups or flairs). No denim. Trousers should not be cropped (there should be no gap between the bottom of the trouser and the shoe).
