The Academy prides itself on the behaviour and attitude to learning of all students. The correct wearing of the Academy uniform is central to this. By wearing our uniform, students visibly belong to the South Axholme learning community. By adhering to the dress code, students arrive at the Academy ready to work, and staff are able to concentrate on the core business of teaching and learning.
Academy uniform can be purchased from any suitable outlet except ties and jumpers. Ties must be purchased directly from the Academy and jumpers may be obtained via the online uniform shop, SWI Schoolwear. SWI also offer the full range of our uniform on their website which can be accessed at swischoolwear.co.uk where you can create an account. All PE kit must be purchased from SWI.

If you purchase a plain black blazer from the high street, the academy badge can be purchased directly from the academy which will then need stitching on to the blazer.
