At South Pennine Academies, we want every student to have the best possible chance to
achieve in school. Stronger partnerships with families, local businesses, community
agencies and universities are essential as we focus on improving student outcomes.
All children are expected to wear full school uniform everyday.
Willowpark uniform consists of
Navy blue school jumper/cardigan – with/without the new school logo
Pale blue shirt/blouse or polo shirt under the jumper/cardigan.
Grey school trousers or skirt.
White or grey socks
Sturdy black school shoes (no heels) – trainers may be worn as long as they are completely black – including the sole of the shoe.
Suitable winter wear - warm winter coat, wellies and hats are advised during wintery weather.
Blue gingham summer dresses and grey shorts are permitted during warmer weather along with sun hats.
Hair accessories should be minimal – navy blue bows/headbands and clips are permitted but bright coloured accessories are not.
Hair styles should be neat and tidy and children are not permitted to have mohicans or shaved designs in their hair.
PE kits – ALL children should have a PE kit in school at ALL times. PE Kits are made up of plain black t-shirt and plain black shorts. Children are not permitted to wear sports gear/football shirts for PE. PE kits are available to buy from the school office for in a PE bag or you may source your own.
Our uniform has been selected to be as cheap as possible for all families and can easily be sourced from local supermarkets. Logo jumpers/cardigans and book bags are available from Debonair, Market Hall, Oldham. OL1 3BG

Help with Uniform
At Willowpark, we know that sometimes it can be difficult keeping up with your growing children when it comes to school uniform. That is why we have a range of donated, pre-loved uniform that we can supply to our families across the Academy if and when the need arises.
We have a range of trousers, skirts, summer dresses and school jumpers and cardigans that you can request if you are in need of new school uniform items.
For more information, please contact Mrs. Reid to discuss.
We are also grateful for donations of uniform that children have grown out so we can repurpose and re-use in school.
Please send any clean, unwanted uniform items to the school office. Thank you.
