At King's Academy Prospect, we believe the school uniform achieves three important goals:
- It encourages a sense of community identity and pride. By wearing the same badge and same clothing, students are encouraged to think of the needs of the community as well as their own individual needs.
- It encourages our students to develop habits for life. By learning to polish their shoes, fold trousers or hang up their blazers, students learn the habits of discipline and personal responsibility that will stay with them for life.
- It prevents unkindness or bullying while keeping costs down. By requiring all our students to ask parents for the latest (and most expensive) items of fashion. As a result, costs are kept as low as possible and no child can be seen to be poorer or wealthier than any other.
We have ensured that the cost of our uniform is good value for money and branded items are kept to a minimum.
We have a small range of secondhand items for sale; please enquire at your admissions meeting.
In certain circumstances, we are able to provide financial support, or provide links to local charities that are able to help.
