The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

School Uniform

It is compulsory for all pupils to wear The Rowans' uniform to school each day.  The uniform consists of a polo shirt and a jumper.  The Rowans' logo must be seen and it is therefore not possible for pupils to wear their own jumper over a Rowans' polo shirt.  Pupils may wear their own choice of trousers and footwear.

It is also compulsory to wear a Rowans' sport T-shirt and shorts for Sports lessons – pupils may bring their own black shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings for PE.  If pupils want to wear a jumper, they may buy a plain black one for £7.50.

We offer each pupil a "starter uniform pack" for £20, which includes two polo shirts, a jumper, sports T-shirt, sports shorts and a PE drawstring bag.  Any extra polo shirts, jumpers, sports T-shirts or sports shorts can be purchased for £5 each.  The school subsidises the cost of the uniform to make sure that is affordable for all.  All uniform must be purchased on line via the School Gateway website. 

In order to pay in this way, you will need to set up your details on the website There is a “help” button (top left of screen) if you require further assistance with registering.  Alternatively, you can contact the school and we will be pleased to help you.

Once you have entered your mobile and email details here, we can accept online payments from you and a receipt will be sent to you for each transaction.   Please note that the system relies on the mobile telephone number and email you register with matching our own records, so please ensure that the school office has up to date information for you.

You can also register for the School Gateway App, either through the website above or through the App Store.

Having achieved an "Outstanding" rating from Ofsted, we are continuing to work hard to further improve and having a uniform worn by all pupils is part of this drive for improvement.  We appreciate parents' support in this matter.
