Uniform

The Importance of Uniform

Parents tell us they welcome having clear knowledge of what their children are expected to wear for school. In light of this we have produced clear guidelines for you.  The uniform ensures that students look professional and that they are ready to learn. We hope you agree it looks very smart. We thank you for your continued support in enabling us to maintain the high standards expected from Goole Academy students.

Please see the documents below for the Uniform Guidance and Uniform Price List.

The Academy has a duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to take action to address behaviour even when students are not under the legal control of the Academy; the wearing of uniform to and from the Academy supports this Act of Parliament.
