There are many very special things about Ansford as a learning community but perhaps the most important one is the way in which each child is encouraged to develop and grow as AN INDIVIDUAL. Our uniform is designed to allow our students to express themselves as individuals while clearly signalling to the world that they are a member of our community. I want our students to wear their uniform smartly as an outward expression of their pride in belonging to the Ansford Academy family.
The uniform has the colours of grey, black and maroon running through it because these are the colours which have represented Ansford for years. You will notice that the logo is made up of individual arcs of grey, black and maroon that sweep together to form the ‘A’ of Ansford. This symbolises the coming together of individual members of the academy to produce the dynamic learning community we hold so dear.
There is no denying that the purchase of uniform can be costly and time consuming for families. In acknowledgement of this we have worked alongside Directschoolwear.co.uk to create a cost effective and easily available uniform that has something for everyone. We are satisfied that the clothing available from directschoolwear.co.uk is of high quality and that it is designed to stand up to the challenges of everyday wear.
I trust that the information on this page and in our booklet will answer all of your questions and that you will feel able to support us in implementing a uniform that reflects our uniqueness.
To make purchasing as easy as possible, most items are available to purchase from Directschoolwear.co.uk which we would strongly recommend.
Any items purchased from alternative suppliers must be the same colour and shade as those available from our recommended supplier and must meet the requirements of the Dress Code.
