Ordering Uniform

The uniform is available from Samuel Daw & Co in Barnstaple. It can be ordered from the shop or on-line. Please click here to access their website.

Certain items can be purchased from other stores - the white shirt, navy v-neck jumper and navy trousers/skirt. However, they must conform to the uniform standards set out in our Ready to Learn information sheet.

Why 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 is also a visible sign of their readiness to learn.

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 overwhelmingly 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.
