The Academy Uniform is changing from September 2014 and is as detailed below:
We will be providing blazers and ties to all our existing students (the new Years 8 – 11) and we will announce the arrangements for sizing and delivery of the blazers/ties shortly, together with the arrangements for ordering uniform for our pupils joining us in September.
In the meantime, the existing uniform can still be purchased, at a significantly reduced price, until July 2014, subject to stock availability. The uniform shop at Waterleat Road will continue to open on Tuesdays between 8.00 – 8.30 a.m. and 3.00 and 3.30 p.m. (Please note the shop is now no longer open on Thursday afternoons.)
