From now until Friday 21st August 2020, blazers will be available to order, free of charge through Microsoft Forms following the below link:

Please use the sizing information (at the end of this update) to identify the blazer size needed for your child. Please give attention to the size of your child and the size you order; returns will only be considered provided that the blazer has not been worn.

It is important that all orders are made by Friday 21st August 2020. This will help A Oakes Ltd ensure your order is processed in a timely manner, ready for the new academic year. Blazers will then be gifted to your child, at the academy when they start in September 2020. 

Reminder: Ties will also be provided free of charge to Year 7 learners during the first week of term, in September 2020. All other uniform requirements are outlined in the Parent/Carer Guide 2020, found under the parents tab of the website.

Additional guidance

Compulsory and optional items as noted in the above table can be purchased from Ron Flowers. For optional items, other suppliers are acceptable. Please note that socks or any other optional items must be plain navy (preferable) or black. The PE department has high standards and one way of maintaining these standards is for all the learners to be smartly dressed in the correct PE kit.

Football boots have become a necessity rather than an optional item in order to reduce the risk of injury caused by slips and loss of grip. There is no need to buy expensive pairs if they will not be used outside of PE lessons. We would also recommend that boots with rubber blades or moulded studs are purchased. As learners will experience indoor and outdoor sports on a rotational basis, it may be best to wait until September before considering purchasing the boots.

We do often find a lot of unclaimed lost property is PE kit; it is therefore essential that you NAME ALL items of PE kit, including trainers with both first name and surname.

Thank you for your continued support and patience at this time. We will continue to provide further updates as soon as possible.
