We would like to draw your attention back to our Uniform Policy.
It clearly states the following requirements:

  • Trousers – must be mid grey in colour (definitely not charcoal grey or black) and formal style
  • Skirts – must be mid grey in colour (definitely not charcoal grey or black) and pleated, formal style
  • Shirts – must be formal shirts with a collar and top buttons must be done up at all times
  • Ties – must be worn at all times
  • Shoes – must be completely black, polishable or patent leather type material, definitely no trainers or canvas shoes
  • Socks / tights – must be black, grey or white. Knee socks are permitted with skirts but should definitely not come higher than just below the knee
  • Laureates Logo purple jumper

There are a number of students who are currently wearing inappropriate items, including black trousers, polo shirts and trainer / converse style shoes.

Other unacceptable uniform items are; skinny fit jean style trousers (for boys or girls), skater skirts, patterned tights, large hair decorations (flowers or headbands), wristbands, large, coloured earrings (a pair of small silver or gold studs are permitted for both boys and girls).

Items of clothing that are designed to conceal identity are not permitted in school at any time. (An example of this type of clothing includes Jackets with hoods that include goggles)

Shirts, skirts and trousers can be purchased from local retail outlets (Asda, Tesco, M&S for example).

Logo items need to be purchased from LISS Sport – our official supplier. You can order items either over the phone or on the internet and items will be delivered to school as soon as they are available.

Key stage 3 school uniforms can be ordered directly from our supplier “Liss Sport” by visiting www.lisssport.co.uk, email: info@lisssport.co.uk or 01455 828086

Key Stage 3 PE Kit Policy
It is expected that all students change into their PE kit every lesson, regardless of whether they are physically taking part in the lesson, or not. To clarify the expectations on the PE kit please see the outline below. If students arrive to lesson without correct kit they will be expected to borrow from us, a process that ultimately leads to a detention. As a Physical Education team, we look forward to your support with this.

  • Black, Bosworth Academy logo polo shirt (initialed)
  • Black Bosworth Academy logo leggings/ joggers (initialed)
