Sixth Form Uniform

Introduction

All students attending the North Liverpool Academy are expected to wear uniform. Whilst fully appreciating the initial cost of a uniform, we feel that it solves several problems; it provides a smart outfit for five days of the week and helps to ensure that no child need look richer or poorer or different. The North Liverpool Academy is a non-religious organisation and welcomes students from any background. Because of this we require that all students follow the strict dress code.

We expect parents to support us in the detail as well as the principle of the North Liverpool Academy uniform.
Do not buy anything that is not on the list or specified. We cannot write a list of exclusions. Only what is written here is permitted.
