In consultation with parents and students, an Academy uniform has been developed that is inexpensive, easy to care for, smart and functional. The wearing of this uniform is compulsory as it is an important element in self-presentation, self-discipline and pride in the Academy.

The academy items that are branded, either compulsory or optional, are available from First4Uniform in Lancing High Street, and via their website here

It is also possible to purchase an academy logo badge from First4Uniform, if you wish to sew this onto a plain black blazer that you have purchased elsewhere. 

Other than the PE t-shirt, all other compulsory items can be purchased from an online or high street retailer of your choice, taking note of specific requirements such as skirt length etc. 

Second-hand uniforms are also available via the Lancing and Sompting Pre-Loved Uniform CIC, which currently operates from the retail shop, Fabric, in Lancing High Street every other Friday between 10.30am - 12.30pm. Additionally, the PTA will arrange a second-hand uniform sale to be held at the Academy on one Saturday morning per term. These dates will be circulated termly via the Parental Bulletin.

There is also a Facebook Group for preloved SRWA uniform, please click here to join.

Sixth form dress code

We don’t have a uniform in sixth form and we try to be as flexible as we can.

The dress code is “look smart, sensible choices” so you need to think about what you choose to wear and whether it would be suitable in the professional workplace. It gives you great training for the future, whether that is for work now or for later in life.
