We will be writing to parents before Easter with details of our uniform provider and how uniforms can be purchased.

All Ark Soane pupils will wear full school uniform. Our uniform will reflect our values and reinforce our academy’s culture of high expectations, pride in our appearance and academic achievement. It is one way in which we will identify ourselves as an academy community and it will promote a strong and cohesive academy identity, supporting high standards in all areas of academy life.
