Brighton Aldridge Community Academy

Uniform

The Academy uniform is a reflection of our professional and ‘business like’ environment.  Brighton Aldridge Community Academy recognises the value of having a school uniform for the following reasons:

Safety – If all the students in our Academy wear a clearly recognisable uniform it is easy to identify strangers. On the way to and from school it also affords a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people and will look out for each other.

Preparation for the future – Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform and even if there isn’t a uniform there is often a dress code. School uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard. It also helps them know the difference between formal and informal dress.

Value for money – Good quality school uniform is a relatively cheap way of dressing young people for school. It makes the mornings easier – they only have to think about their uniform and not alternatives.

Ready for work – Putting on school uniform is a signal you are going to work.

A sense of pride – We all feel proud of our young people when they are well dressed in Academy uniform.

We have now partnered with Sussex Uniforms so that parents and students can purchase uniforms online. Please visit the Sussex Uniforms website to order.  Try to avoid the rush and order early, during June the shop is quieter and this is the best time to buy.
