Academy Uniform

Orders for Academy uniform can be placed directly with our supplier, Anglia Sports & Schoolwear via their online ordering service at www.yourschoolwear.co.uk.

Alternatively, you can order uniform via the Academy:

E-mail your order to [email protected] 

Or you can order in writing for the attention of Mrs C Surman.

When ordering via the Academy please make sure you include the following information:

Item Required
Students Name
Students Mentor Group
Contact Number

Payment can be made either by cash or cheque. The Academy cannot accept credit or debit cards. Cheques should be made payable to Ormiston Rivers Academy.

Please be aware that trainers are not allowed and proper leather school shoes are the only footwear permitted.

In preparation for a return in the new term, please ensure you have checked our website for uniform expectations. Again, following Government guidance, the expectation is that students will be in full uniform for the start of the new term in September. However, on days that your child has PE they will be able to wear the school PE uniform instead, as changing rooms will not be able to be used.


I am aware that during lockdown several students may have experimented with dyeing their hair (no doubt in a vast array of colours), or tried new hairstyles; trying out piercings or new jewellery, new nail colours and styles etc. However, all students must return with naturally coloured and appropriate hairstyles, nails etc. in line with the Academy’s uniform policy. Unfortunately, if this is not adhered to, students will be sent home to get things “fixed”, as we will adhere to the behaviour policy around this. If your child has had a facial piercing, for example, they must remove it before entering the Academy. Nails should be natural and not false, kept at a short length. Please do read our uniform policy on our website for further details.

The letter sent out on 06/07/2020 with full details of the September return can be found HERE.
