Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Uniform and Equipment

We believe that uniform is the start to good discipline at Harris Garrard Academy, across both our primary and secondary phases.

This page gives you a summary of the uniform and PE kit for both primary and secondary students. Full details of our uniform are in our uniform policy which can be downloaded from the student welfare section of our website.


Where to purchase

To purchase items of uniform (which can be bought online) please contact: Brigade Clothing Ltd, Torrington Avenue, Tile Hill, Coventry, West Midlands, CV4 9US. Email: Sales@Brigade.uk.com. Tel: 0247 642 1083. Web: www.brigadeuniformdirect.uk.com.


Primary unifom

Our primary uniform is smart, comfortable and practical. It reflects the aspirations of our academy and pupils are expected to wear it correctly at all times of the day. For full details, please see the uniform policy, which can be downloaded from the student welfare section of our website.

Primary uniform

To prevent uniform getting lost, please make sure that each item is named using an iron-on, stick-on or sewn-in label, or by using a permanent naming pen.

Equipment for primary students

Students should always bring to the Academy:

  • their reading record
  • their reading book
  • their homework
  • a water bottle (water only)
  • a piece of fruit (KS2 only – this is optional)
  • PE bag (every Monday – should go home on Friday to be washed)

We do not want to see in bags:

  • food (apart from the above mentioned piece of fruit). Children who choose to bring in a piece of fruit will be expected to eat it in the lunch hall
  • sweets
  • liquids that are not water
  • pencil cases (these are not needed in primary as we provide all stationery)
  • toys of any kind

Secondary uniform

Our secondary uniform reflects the aspirations of our academy and pupils are expected to wear it correctly at all times of the day. For full details, please see the uniform policy, which can be downloaded from the student welfare section of our website.

Secondary uniform

To prevent uniform getting lost, please make sure that each item is named using an iron-on, stick-on or sewn-in label, or by using a permanent naming pen.

Equipment for secondary students

In order to ensure that pupils are prepared to learn and valuable time is not wasted at the start of every lesson, it is vital that pupils are prepared for their learning. A simple checklist is given below and the expectation is that every pupil has the correct equipment with them at all times.

  • A strong, blue Harris rucksack suitable for school books
  • Pencil case
  • Pens (black and/or blue) - minimum of two
  • Pencils/sharpener/eraser
  • Coloured pencils and highlighters
  • Ruler
  • Scientific calculator
  • Geometry set for Mathematics
  • A reading book

Have you got your Magnificent Seven?

Every morning the Form Tutor will check to see that each student has 'The Magnificent Seven':

  1. Reading book
  2. Pen
  3. Pencil
  4. Ruler
  5. Homework booklet
  6. Pencil case
  7. Harris bag

For each lesson they will need 'The Famous Five':

  1. Pen
  2. Pencil
  3. Ruler
  4. Homework booklet
  5. Pencil case

We are passionate about preparing students for the challenges of latter life. Being prepared and equipped for learning is a key lifelong skill that will enable our students to be equipped for the world of work.
