Our Uniform

Why is uniform so important to us?

Our students each have their own background; with a common uniform we have the opportunity to ensure that each has equality at school. There is also the shared ownership and pride in the school that we aim to foster. Wearing the uniform correctly and smartly is also good preparation for working life; each student should take pride in their own appearance and be clean and smart everyday, both in school and when travelling to and from school.


UNIFORM PROTOCOL

Sir Robert Pattinson Academy has a clear, sustainable, affordable and smart school uniform.  Students in year 7 to 11 wear this uniform with pride.
