What is our uniform?

We would like to inform you that we are making a trial amendment to our uniform policy, after the period of consultation with our students last half term.
Students are permitted to wear grey tailored school shorts, should they choose to do so, during the last half term of the academic year. Please see the image below for visual guidance on what we expect when we use the phrase ‘tailored shorts’.
Students are still expected to wear their usual shirts, ties, socks and blazers with the shorts – we have not changed any other rules associated with uniform.
This is for a temporary period only and will be reviewed for the summer of 2019. The shorts can be worn by both boys and girls. We ask parents to avoid the ‘cargo short’ style and only purchase
shorts that are a close match to the image below. You should be able to purchase these at most school uniform retailers.

Measuring Guide for Ordering Uniform
Our uniform and sportswear garments are generally designed for the best fit. For example, if your child measures 28 inches, then that is the size we recommend that you buy. If your child is between sizes, then we recommend that you buy the next size up.
Measurements such as height are a better guide than age in choosing the correct size, so if your child is taller than average, it is advisable to order the next size up on tops or trousers.
Please note: All of our garment sizes are given in inches.
Please note the process for ordering uniform has changed.
From 1st May 2013 all uniform orders are to be made directly to our suppliers, either by on-line, telephone or post. These changes have been made to improve the process and offer parents more flexibility.

To guarantee new uniform is with you for the first day of the autumn term please ensure all orders are placed with the supplier by Monday 5th August 2019 at the latest.
Uniform will continue to be ordered by the Academy for those parents who receive vouchers from the Thomas Anguish Fund.
