Our Academy Uniform
There has been much talk surrounding the obligations on schools to provide the best value, quality uniform that they can to parents. We pride ourselves in insisting on high standards of uniform at all times and believe we have sourced an ethical, cost effective and high quality uniform which is fit for purpose.
We have no plans to change the actual uniform from the existing grey suit which is manufactured by Sports Wear International (SWI); previously we used SWI as both manufacturer and supplier. However, during last summer it became apparent that SWI struggled to supply our uniform orders in a timely fashion and to maintain the highest standards of customer service that our parents deserve.
We have once again explored the option of having our uniform in a retail shop but this does increase the cost by 30-40%. A cost that we don't feel is appropriate to pass onto parents. Hence, after consultation with parents, we have decided to move our supplier to Proserve who are a Devon based company who can provide a more effective service. This switch will now take place on 6th April and all uniform orders should now go through www.proservegroup.com.
