Parents

Uniform

Bluecoat Wollaton Academy has clear and strict guidelines on dress code, we pride ourselves on high standards and all students are expected to wear the Academy uniform detailed below. The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives students a sense of belonging and helps foster a pride in the Academy. We ask our students to wear their uniform properly on their way to and from the Academy, on site and at all Academy events and visits.
