The Link Academy - Uniform Update

The Link Academy - Uniform Update

Dudley Academies Trust has recently taken the decision to change the name and identity of each of its four schools.  From the start of the new academic year 2018/19:

Hillcrest School is changing to The Link Academy

The change of name will be reflected in the school uniform for the 2018/19 academic year. So that we can ensure all learners from all year groups have the appropriate uniform, Dudley Academies Trust has entered into an agreement with A.Oakes Ltd school uniform supplier, based at 30 Churchill Shopping Centre, Dudley, DY2 7BL to provide every learner FREE of CHARGE with a school blazer and tie. Every existing learner and every new learner due to join one of our DAT schools will have now received a voucher entitling them to this free offer.

Actions you will need to take:

  • Blazers are available for collection free of charge from A Oakes Ltd, Dudley from 23/07/18 to 01/09/18. You will need to take the voucher letter you have received with you. You will need to be accompanied by your child – so they can be correctly fitted for the right size blazer.
  • Ties will be provided free of charge to each learner and will be distributed by the schools on the the first day of term.

I’ve lost my original voucher – what can I do?

If you have misplaced your voucher please contact info@dudleyacademiestrust.org.uk or telephone 01384 363 247 with your child’s name, date of birth and year group. A new voucher will then be issued electronically as soon as possible. Should you require a printed version please also state this in your email alongside your postal address.

As you will appreciate this offer represents a considerable investment by Dudley Academies Trust.  The wearing of appropriate uniform is a key part of our behaviour policy which seeks to ensure there are the highest standards across all schools. We wish to thank all parents for supporting us with this matter.
