The High Weald Academy

School Uniform

School Uniform for Academic Year 2016/17

High Weald Academy students are required to wear school uniform at all times whilst in school.

The new-style High Weald Academy uniform will be launched in September 2016 for the new Year 7 intake, and older students may wear it as they grow out of their current, old-style uniform.  You may want to buy new for September for your child anyway and we expect the old uniform to have run its course within one school year, and ideally by Easter 2017.  There is also a new backpack which will be on sale for Year 7s and will be compulsory for them to use this bag.


High Weald Academy uniform will now be sold via a company called SWI. SWI will deliver all 'day' uniform as well as the new PE kit, which until this year was purchased via the finance department in school.

Click here to order the new uniform from the SWI 'Direct to Parent' website:

Simply follow the intructions to 'Register' as a parent, create an account and place your order.  Alternatively, you can send a paper order form and cheque payment via the post; download the order form at the bottom of the page and follow the instructions on the right-hand side of the form.  Delivery of the uniform should be made directly to your home address.

To make sure that you purchase the correct size uniform for your child, please see the SWI measurement guide here before making your order: 

If you wish to see the HWA uniform in person, please contact the academy reception and make an appointment.
