School Uniform Policy
Looe Community Academy Uniform
We expect all students to wear the Academy uniform. This encourages a sense of identity and pride in the Academy, and helps us to maintain a good standard of appearance. The school blazer with badge and tie and the girls' skirt are only available from www.uniform-direct.com. This supplier also supplies tailored trousers for boys and girls. The style of trousers and stitched-down pleated skirt must conform to those sold by www.uniform-direct.com for Looe Community Academy and not other schools. The school has a sample stock of blazers to assist with sizing and can help with ordering on your behalf.
