Chellaston Academy Uniform from September 2022
As we look forward to celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2025 we will be maintaining a high expectation in the standard of our uniform. Over the past year we have been working hard to ensure that our uniform remains smart but as affordable and as widely available as possible. All current uniform and PE Kit can still be worn and we will be encouraging students to recycle wearable items that they have outgrown until they are no longer fit for purpose. We have made slight adjustments to our existing uniform to make it more sustainable and we are introducing a new and exciting tie design which features our unique school emblem.
All compulsory items, except the blazer badge, tie and short sleeved PE top are widely available from supermarkets and retail outlets. We recommend that uniform items are purchased in good time for the start of the new academic year as stock in many outlets quickly becomes unavailable.
Before purchasing any items of uniform from retail outlets other than our uniform supplier, please use our checklist to ensure you buy items which meet our uniform criteria. We will not accept items that do not meet the uniform criteria even if they are sold as ‘schoolwear’.
Our uniform supplier, Uniformality, Borrowash has all items available to order from Easter 2022 onwards and will continue to have supplies throughout the year.
We anticipate having a large selection of recycled uniform available from the end of June. Details of when these items will be offered for sale for a small donation will be sent at a later date. If you currently have any uniform that is ready to be recycled, please bring it to our reception where there is already a dedicated box.
We would like to remind all parents and students that unnatural hair colours, extreme hair styles and, for safety reasons, long false or acrylic nails and any jewellery other than a watch, one plain ring and one pair of stud earrings and are not permitted. Facial piercings must be removed.
