All 11-16 students who attend Ashington Academy must wear a school uniform. Wearing a uniform creates a sense of community and we believe ours is both practical and fair. LEAP points are awarded to students who consistently wear correct uniform.

At Ashington Academy we pride ourselves on our high standards. As such, we consistently strive to ensure all students are dressed appropriately in full school uniform at all times. You can buy our uniform from our school supplier, Emblamatic, using the link at the bottom of this page.
