Our school outfitters are Stevensons, 131-135 Victoria Street, St Albans, AL1 3XS. Telephone: 01727 853262.

Stevensons are our recommended supplier. There may be alternative suppliers that provide identical items to this that are also acceptable.

We will endeavour to support any families with funding to ensure they are able to provide the correct uniform if required. Please contact Mrs Kemp (ckemp@hertswoodacademy.org) or your relevant Head of Learning for advice.

Stevensons carry stock in their St Albans shop where items can be purchased at any time of the year. Additionally, items can be ordered by telephone or online.

The Academy reserves the right at any time to determine what is unacceptable in terms of its uniform. Sweatshirts and hooded tops should not be worn. Students who arrive at school wearing trainers or inappropriate footwear will be issued with a pair of plain black plimsolls.

Students may be sent home to change into what is considered acceptable.
