Sixth Form Uniform

All students attending North Liverpool Academy are expected to wear school uniform and smart business dress. 

Our uniform ensures that our students are smartly dressed whilst attending school, and also that all students feel welcome and comfortable as we are a non-religious organisation which welcomes students from any background. Because of this we require that all students follow our strict dress code.
