Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Uniform

We take pride in each and every one of our pupils at the Academy, and know that they are equally proud to be wearing their Academy badge on their uniforms. 

Our Academy works with the uniform provider Skoolkit. Here you can buy everything you need, from school jumpers to book bags.
