At Campsmount Academy we believe school uniform is important as it contributes to a sense of belonging and fosters a feeling of pride within our school community.
From 1st July 2020, Campsmount Academy uniform will only be available to purchase from SWI Schoolwear (with the exception of ties and sports socks; which can also be purchased from Reception). Orders can be placed online by visiting www.swischoolwear.co.uk or a telephone order can be placed by dialling 01928 752 610 - Option 1. A copy of the order form is attached below.
To assist you with ordering, a sizing guide is attached below.
We recommend that all orders are placed on or before Monday 3rd August 2020 ready for the start of term. Although this is not a cut-off date, we advise ordering early to ensure students have their items in plenty of time before the start of term.
Items ordered from SWI Schoolwear are only currently available for home delivery. We are hoping to arrange for weekly deliveries to school in the new academic year but we will notify parents when this option becomes available.
All students are required to wear the Campsmount Blazer.
Blazers are to be worn at all times with sleeves rolled down. Blazers must be purchased from SWI Schoolwear (see link above).
All students MUST wear a cotton-type plain white shirt or blouse with a collar. These can be long or short sleeved. Shirts can be purchased from SWI Schoolwear or can be purchased from other retailers.
The shirt/blouse must be long enough to be able to be tucked into trousers or a skirt. Shirts/blouses must button up to the top (up to the collar).
Trousers should be plain black and should not be jean-type material. A helpful description would be 'suit-type material'. If trousers have 'studs' on, they will deemed to be jeans.
They should be loose fitting and should not be 'skinny-fit'.
Trousers should take a belt so that students' underwear is not visible.
If students choose to wear a skirt, our new tartan style skirt will be compulsory from September 2020 for students in Year 7 and Year 8 only. The tartan style skirt will then be optional for Years 9, 10 and 11 until September 2021, when it will become a compulsory item of the uniform for all year groups.
Orders can be placed for Years 7 and 8 and purchased via ParentMail, or ordered by emailing SST@campsmount.com.
Alternatively, we will be holding dedicated sales days where skirts can be purchased on the day and orders collected. The dates for these events are:
Thursday 27th August 2020, 10.00am until 2.00pm and,
