All pupils are expected to maintain a high standard of appearance and to wear school uniform during school hours and when representing the school. We appreciate the support of parents/carers in maintaining our school uniform.
The school uniform consists of:
- White shirt
- Alford Academy school tie
- Black V-neck jumper with embroidered school badge (S1 – S3)
- Black blazer with embroidered school badge (S4 – S6)
- Black skirt/trousers/leggings (all black, opaque, no logos)
- Black shoes or black trainer-type shoes
Purchasing School Uniform
School ties are available from the school office, please phone or email us for information. Order forms are available from school office or can be downloaded from the school website. Please note ad hoc orders for school ties that are lost or need replaced can be made any time during the school session. The cost of the school tie is £5.
School knitwear and blazers can be purchased via our supplier Stevensons via their website. Contact details: Website https://www.stevensons.co.uk/school-finder/alford-academy-alford

Telephone: 01727 815700
Please select Alford Academy and you will see the range of options for blazers (for S4-S6 pupils only) and jumpers embroidered with the school badge.

Staff from Stevensons will be in school on the afternoon of Thursday 15 June to provide a fitting service. A professional fitting is particularly advised for the first blazer purchased and therefore all new S4-6 pupils will be given the opportunity to try on blazers and be provided with information on their blazer size and how to order to take home. There is also a Sizing Guide section on the website.
In addition, staff will be available in the Community Room at Alford Campus from 2:50-3:30 pm on 15 June for any parents that may wish to take the opportunity for their child to try on different sizes of knitwear (or blazers). This event is particularly useful for parents of our P7s who will be joining Alford Academy in August 2023. (Please note this event is for fitting only, not sales. However, there would be an opportunity to purchase a school tie from the school office).
PE Kit Expectations
- Pupils attending PE classes are expected to bring an appropriate change of clothing.
- Whether indoors or outdoors this change should include:
- Shorts, Tracksuit bottoms, Sport Leggings
- Sports Sweatshirt (optional, dependent on weather)
- Appropriate Trainers (must be a change from school footwear)
- Appropriate swimwear and towel for swimming (goggles are optional)
PE Kit should show an appropriate measure of modesty. School uniform will not be considered as a change of kit. Pupils who fail to bring all or part of their appropriate PE kit can borrow items from the spare kit held in the PE department. We operate a 100% PE Kit Policy which means all pupils bring PE Kit to every PE lesson. Full details can be found on the school blog
Some families may be entitled to a school clothing grant of £120 per eligible Primary aged school children and £150 per eligible child for Secondary school aged children per financial year. More information about this can be found at:
In addition, we run a uniform resource for all families that can be accessed in the main entrance of the school campus. This resource includes trousers, skirts, shirts, jumpers, blazers and ties and you can simply collect what you need. If the items / size you require is not available or you are unable to visit the resource in person then please contact Mrs Jo Munro, PT Equity, Excellence and Wellbeing (email@example.com) to discuss.
At various times during the school session our Parent Council may also offer a pre-loved uniform scheme where they collect donations of pre-loved uniform in good condition from parents which are then offered free of charge or for a small donation to any family at a table top event. Look out for further information on our school blog/Facebook page for information.
If you would like to donate any items to our resource then please leave them at the school reception.
