From now until Friday 21st August 2020, blazers will be available to order, free of charge through Microsoft Forms following the below link:

Please use the sizing information (at the end of this update) to identify the blazer size needed for your child. Please give attention to the size of your child and the size you order; returns will only be considered provided that the blazer has not been worn.

It is important that all orders are made by Friday 21st August 2020. This will help A Oakes Ltd ensure your order is processed in a timely manner, ready for the new academic year. Blazers will then be gifted to your child, at the academy when they start in September 2020.

Year 7 learners (2020)

Jo Higgins, Chief Executive of Dudley Academies Trust is delighted to confirm that we will be gifting a blazer and tie, free of charge to each Year 7 learner. Ties will be given to our Year 7 learners by the academy on their first day of the new academic year 2020/2021 (to be confirmed based on government guidance).

Ties

Year 11 is a very important year for our young people; therefore Dudley Academies Trust is delighted to be able to gift our Year 11 learners their new academy coloured Year 11 tie. Ties will be given to our Year 11 learners by the academy on their first day of the new academic year 2020/2021 (to be confirmed based on government guidance).

For Years 8 to 10, ties will only be available to purchase at the academy at a cost of £4 per tie. We have changed the supplier of our ties and are pleased they are now £1 cheaper than last year.

Ties for Year 7 and 8 learners will be 14” in length and Years 9 to 11 will be 16”. Note the size of the tie can be flexible based on the learner.
