Update on uniform orders

Dear Parents/Carers,

Over the summer holiday, we have received a large number of uniform orders from parents/carers for both PE Kit and Blazers. Unfortunately, despite these orders being placed by the academy, the national uniform supplier has been unable to deliver these to the Academy on time and hence not all pupils have received their uniform today. We are working hard to ensure that all our pupils have their uniform by the end of the week. Please can we remind you that pupils who already have existing uniform at home, wear these items until their new uniform arrives.

Please be assured that we will be meeting with our supplier to discuss this issue with them so that we can prevent any future delays.

You will receive a further letter from us which outlines how you can order uniform in the future through our new parent-pay uniform on-line shop. The academy also stocks a range of sizes for pupils to try on and details of how your child can do this will be included in the letter. Please remember that if your child is in Years 8-11, you do not have to purchase the new uniform at this time, but will use the system to replace any items that they have outgrown. Please also note that any new uniform orders can take ten days to arrive, if the item is not in stock, so your child must hold onto their existing uniform until the new item arrives.

If you have any queries about this, then please speak to your child’s Head of Year or Associate Head of Year in the first instance.

We thank you for your understanding with this.

Mrs S Fiddler

Assistant Vice Principal
