Guilsborough Academy Uniform

The staff and Governors expect all students to wear the Guilsborough Academy uniform throughout Years 7 to 11 so that their appearance is smart and tidy, both within and outside the school premises.

If parents/carers are on a low income and in receipt of support, they should contact the academy as help may be available with the cost of the essential items of uniform. By accepting a place at Guilsborough Academy, parents are committing the student to wear the agreed uniform.

Hardship Fund
