Don Valley Academy School Uniform

Academy Uniforms

This year, Delta Uniforms are offering some deals on uniforms on their website.  Parents can buy the whole uniform together and receive free delivery which would be cheaper than purchasing uniform items individually.  This service will be added to their website and should be available by the end of this month.

Thank you for your support.  The students have designed the uniform because they want to look smarter.  We are keen as an academy to reduce the costs to parents as much as possible and we always want to avoid any confusion or lack of clarity with regards to uniform.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if any of the above is unclear.

Please refer to the student planner for full details of the policy.
