A smart dress code benefits everyone

The governors, staff, and parents at Ellacombe Church of England Academy place great emphasis on high standards. Our drive to realising these standards encompasses all aspects of academy life; teaching and learning, relationships, behaviour and dress code, etc. Wearing the correct academy uniform is essential. The support of parents is very important in this. It is very important that all clothing is clearly labelled.

Our uniform is supplied via Price and Buckland and can be purchased online:
