The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

School Uniform

School Uniform

It is compulsory for all pupils to wear The Rowans’ uniform to school each day. 

Our uniform is comfortable, practical and affordable.  It does not require pupils to wear formal shoes or a blazer.  However, it is important that pupils come to school in uniform. 

Pupils should wear black below the waist and black trainers.  Pupils must also wear a polo shirt and a sweatshirt. Both have the Rowans’ logo, which must be seen, therefore it is not possible for pupils to wear their own jumper over a Rowans’ polo shirt.  It is also compulsory to wear a Rowans’ sport t-shirt for sport lessons, plain black shorts or jogging bottoms can be their own choice. No hats or caps are permitted in school and pupils should not wear sliders or flip flops.

Uniform can be bought directly from school, with payment to be made using the School Gateway.  The cost of uniform is heavily subsidised by the school to make it affordable.  The cost has risen significantly for the school and for the supplier, therefore, we have had to reluctantly increase the cost slightly from April 2023.  The new costs are below:


Cost to parents/carers

If you would like to set up a payment plan, please do not hesitate to ask.  All payments must be made online, via the School Gateway – please contact the office if you need help in setting this up.

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.
