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, from September 2019 we are making a small change to further improve standards.  Therefore, pupils will be expected to wear black trousers, black jeans, black leggings, black skirts, black shorts or black jogging bottoms.

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 to be their own choice.

We offer each pupil a “starter uniform pack” for £25, which includes two polo shirts, a jumper, sport t-shirt, shorts and a PE drawstring bag.

Any items purchased after this will be charged at £7 per item.  The school subsidises the cost of this uniform to make sure it is affordable for all.  However, 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.
