Uniform & Equipment

Northern Education Trust believes that students learn most effectively and achieve their best outcomes when they are comfortable, able to be themselves, and are dressed in such a way that sets an appropriate tone for education.

A consistent academy uniform policy is vital to promote the ethos of the academy and provide a sense of belonging and identity for all students, regardless of their protected characteristics or socio-economic circumstances.

Our uniform policy lays out the measures taken to ensure a consistent, fair and inclusive uniform policy; to implement a uniform that reflects the needs of all students; and a uniform that is affordable and the best value for money for the academy and students’ parents/carers.

Students must wear full academy uniform at all times when they are within the academy or on an academy visit, unless otherwise stated.

A copy of our academy uniform policy and uniform checklist including PE kit requirements can be found in the links below.




We expect that students always bring the following items into the academy:

  • A suitable school bag
  • Need to Know book
  • Planner
  • Books (supplied by the academy)
  • Stationery – Pen, pencil and ruler


Students must wear full academy uniform at all times when they are within the academy or on an academy visit, unless otherwise stated. Our school uniform is worn with pride, and any item (including pin badges) carrying unacceptable slogans, statements or images of a political nature are prohibited.
