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.
The following uniform items will only be available to order from School Colours Direct:
- 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
How to order uniform items
• To check that you are ordering the correct sizes, we advise that you come to one of our fitting sessions that will be held at the Academy as follows:

During the current Covid-19 crisis we are unable to provide a fitting session, please use this guide to measure your child. We are still receiving orders on the first and third Thursday of the month. Deliveries during the summer holidays are scheduled for Thursday 13, Thursday 20 and Thursday 27 August 2020. We are going to arrange an appointment system to collect uniform to keep within social distancing rules. You can have uniform delivered to home but this incurs a charge.
