Why a Formal Uniform?

"The uniform at Route 39 Academy is a symbol of our students’ aspirations and will reflect their pride and commitment to being a member of the Route 39 Academy community. It will also be a visible sign of their readiness to learn." Principal Joss Hayes.

At our first Open Day in October 2012, we asked parents and students to vote for either a smart and business-like, or more casual uniform. The results were overwhemingly in favour of a formal uniform, including blazer and tie.

We then organised a competition for local children to design the school's logo. This was won by Allie Street, an 11 year-old student from Stratton. Her design of an acorn was developed into the symbol which will decorate every blazer and fleece. ‘It shows you are a member of the school, but still an individual’ she commented.
