Uniform

Update – July 2016

As you are aware Beckfoot Thornton is planning to academise on 1st September 2016.

In terms of uniform this will involve a change to the school badge, however new style blazers and PE kit will not be ready from our suppliers until the middle of August.

If you are a parent of a student joining us in Year 7 in September, you will need to wait until the last few weeks of the holiday to purchase a school blazer which has the new school badge.

If you are a parent of a student already in the school we do not require you to buy a new blazer for the start of September and students in Years 8 to 11 can continue to wear the old uniform until it needs replacing, at which point you would need to buy a blazer with the new school badge.

The same applies for our school PE kit which can be purchased within school.

All students should continue to wear the current school tie. The tie will change but we will provide all students with a new school tie free of charge when the new design is agreed.

Finally there has been a change to uniform policy and all students must wear trousers (not skin tight in design) from September, skirts will no longer be part of our school uniform.

Our uniform helps students be ready for learning and take pride in their school. On this page you will find images showing how we expect students to arrive at school.

The following information can also be found on page 5 of student planners.
