Just spent an hour talking about some of the tools you can use to navigate news with young people and encouraging critical thinking and inquisitiveness. Ask yourself: 'does it feel real?'

Harris Academy Peckham Uniform

Students wear our uniform with pride. It is smart but practical, and reflects all of our aspirations for our Academy.

“If you look smart, you are smart” is mantra we all believe in.

To prevent uniform getting lost, please make sure that each item is named using an iron-on, stick-on or sewn-in label, or by using a permanent naming pen.


Harris Academy Peckham uniform can be purchased from;

Students are expected to be of smart and sensible appearance.  Individual fashion statements such as extreme hair styles or colours, designer shirts, trainers and decorated footwear are not permitted.  Tram lines or other shaved shapes in the hair and ‘bar codes’ in eyebrows are not permitted.  Extreme hairstyles are not allowed, this includes Mohican haircuts. Tinted or cosmetic contact lenses and decorative dental wear are not permitted.  No bandannas, hoods, caps or hats at any time are allowed.

By requiring students to wear the Academy uniform, it is intended to develop their sense of loyalty to the community of which they are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance.  Students are expected to wear full Academy uniform on the way to and from the Academy.

If students are not in full uniform they will not be able to attend lessons.  They will work in the referral room, until the correct uniform is brought to them or they will be sent home to change, with parental permission.  If a student persistently fails to wear uniform the normal Academy procedure for student support should be followed (see Student Discipline Policy Document).
