The way that students dress is important to create a smart, disciplined and purposeful academic environment, and as role models to promote the public image of Giles Academy in the wider community. At the start of every term, students are issued with a ‘Strike Card’ to ensure our uniform standards are maintained. Please note that it is extremely important for all items of uniform to be labelled. If families are experiencing particular financial difficulty, the school may be able to assist with the provision of uniform as necessary. Please contact the school for further details.
