New uniform creates a good first impression
New uniform at Cowley Academy creates a good first impression
Mr Glenn Martin, Head of School with students in their new school uniform
Everyone knows how important it is to make a good first impression, which is one of the reasons why the students at Cowley Academy will have a new school uniform from September 2022.
The school recognises how important it is to provide quality and affordable clothing for families. At Cowley Academy, the cost of a blazer, jumper, school tie and trousers or skirt with some white shirts for a student will be under £100. To help with the costs of this new style of uniform, every student in years 8 to 11 received a free school blazer and tie plus students who are in receipt of free school meals were provided with vouchers to get discounts off other clothing items.
The only compulsory items of clothing with a school logo are the school blazer and school trousers or skirt. By not having logos on jumpers or PE clothing has helped keep costs down as well as the school choosing clothing that can be purchased on the high street or from their official supplier.
The uniforms have been provided by Nationwide School Uniforms in Spilsby who are the local supplier for Cowley Academy as well as other primary and secondary schools in Lincolnshire.
Mr Glenn Martin, Head of School said “The school uniform sets the professional standards required by all students at Cowley Academy. By all students wearing the same uniform and adhering to our dress code policy, it ensures everyone is treated equally and promotes high aspiration, inclusivity, and pride in our school. We would like to thank all of the parents and families for their understanding and co-operation during this change as they will see the positive impact that this will make to the entire school.”
