Dogsthorpe Academy

Uniform

In September 2014 we joined the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust Group of Academies and became known as the Dogsthorpe Academy. As part of the Trust ethos there is a high expectation on appearance to develop a sense of pride and respect on the part of all Academies within the group.

The Dogsthorpe Academy has strict guidelines on dress and all pupils are expected to wear the full Academy uniform. The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging’, helps foster a pride in the Academy and stops pupils coming to the Academy in unsuitable clothes.

The Academy now has an online facility with our uniform supplier, Price and Buckland.  Please click on the link below to go to their website and set up an account for any items you wish to order – read the details on how to order on this information sheet. You can also speak to our staff in the office for any uniform queries.
