A smart school uniform plays an important role supporting our academy ethos.

We expect all students to wear the correct uniform properly, both in and outside school, and to feel proud of the school it represents. We want students to be ambassadors for the academy and to create the right impression when in the community.

A uniform sets the tone for each school day - that we are ready to work hard, we are aiming for high standards and caring for one another equally. We want all students to take pride in looking smart and professional; if everyone wears a uniform, no-one stands out so a uniform can also help to reduce bullying.

At home, it is a practical answer to getting ready for school quickly and represents better value for money than fashion items.

We recommend that all students' clothing and personal belongings are clearly labelled with their name.

St Aidan's Academy Uniform has changed from September 2017 for all students.

However, Years 10 and 11 can buy the new uniform if they would like to. If you do not wish to buy the new uniform, there is absolutely no pressure on you to do so.
