Uniform

We have worked with some of the students to produce a stylish, modern and professional uniform which the academy and community can be proud of - we hope you like it. Moreover, we have carefully chosen uniform items that are readily available, at a reasonable price, from several high street stores.

As from 18th December 2017, the following uniform items will only be available to order from School Colours Direct:

  • Blazer
  • Kilt
  • Long sleeve V-neck jumper
  • Long sleeve rugby shirt
  • PE polo shirt


Ties can be purchased from the Academy and also may be ordered from School Colours Direct
