Crawshaw Academy believes that our uniform plays an important part in supporting the ethos of the academy and reflects the standard of appearance that we expect by:

  • Promoting a communal identity unique to the academy
  • Reflecting high standards of appearance thus creating a sense of pride in the academy community
  • Protecting students from social pressure to dress in a particular way
