The High Weald Academy students are required to wear school uniform at all times whilst in school and it can be purchased via SWI.

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

Simply follow the instructions 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 click here to see the SWI measurement guide before making your order. 

We would usually offer you the opportunity to see the uniform in person, however, due to the current Covid Restrictions we are unable to offer you this facility.  We therefore recommend that you contact SWI directly to discuss your sizing requirements.
