Uniform

uniform

Students, parents and staff have worked hard to create our distinctive uniform for Years 7-11. The uniform design takes into account durability, cost and identity. It gives students a feeling of pride which we hope will stay with them throughout their days at The Leigh Academy and beyond. Each College has its own unique colour:

  • Brunel – Red
  • Chaucer – Blue
  • Darwin – Green
  • Da Vinci – Yellow

This also helps to engender individual pride in each community. Post 16 students wear smart business dress.

The wearing of uniform is essential for the maintenance of high standards in all aspects of Academy and College life and considerably enhances the Academy’s image and standing in the community. A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and anyone arriving in non-uniform clothing may expect to be sent home.
