Uniform

All students at The Halifax Academy are required to wear school uniform, without exception.

Primary

Our primary uniform has been designed in purple to represent the three house colours combined. The uniform consists of the following:

We ask parents to support the academy by ensuring children do not have ‘extreme’ haircuts, such as lines or shapes cut into the hair during term time.

We also ask that children do not wear nail varnish to school.

The academy's polo shirts, cardigans, sweatshirts, PE t-shirts and book bags can be purchased from Shaw Hardcastle, 3 Old Market, Halifax, HX1 1TJ. Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled with your child's name.
