All children are expected to wear academy uniform at all times. Logoed uniform can be purchased online from
We will also host ‘Pop Up Shops’ as required throughout the academic year with John Whitgift Academy.
SPT Uniforms also offer a Free “Click and Collect” service to all parents. This is where parents can order their uniform items online, and then SPT Uniforms will make a delivery to the academy on a regular basis to deliver items to the academy, free of charge. The parent will then receive a text to say that the order has been delivered to the academy and is awaiting collection. SPT are also looking to start a ‘pre-loved’ uniform shop in the near future – we will keep you updated about that.
Parents/Carers can also purchase uniform from other retailers and second hand shops. At the end of each academic year, we have a non uniform day so that families can donate good quality uniform to our second hand suppliers. Information about how to collect from them is sent out each year.
Skirts, shirts and trousers can be purchased from supermarkets or elsewhere.
