All students at The Halifax Academy are required to wear school uniform, without exception.
Our primary uniform has been designed in purple to represent the three house colours combined. The uniform consists of the following:
- White polo shirt with academy logo and house name
- Purple cardigan or sweatshirt with academy logo and house name
- A black skirt or pinafore dress
- Smart black trousers (not fashion trousers)
- Plain white or black tights or socks
- Sensible black shoes (with covered toes), not trainers
- Book bag with academy logo
- In summer, purple and white gingham dresses or smart black shorts may be worn.
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.
- Black PE shorts
- T-shirt in house colour with academy PE logo
- A pump bag will be given to pupils by the academy
- Please note plain stud earrings may be worn - these will need to be removed for P.E.
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.
Ties are available from the main school office.

We will contact parents of students arriving at the academy in non-uniform or wearing inappropriate footwear, with a view to them going home to change. Outdoor coats must be navy blue/black – Only academy PE hooded tops are acceptable.
Shirts must always be tucked in and a black blazer and school tie must always be worn.
