All pupils at North Liverpool Academy are required to wear the correct uniform.

The 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.

The correct uniform is as follows:

School Skirt – Black with four pleats (2 in front/2 in back). No pinafores allowed.

School Trousers – Black
