Uniform

Our school uniform is designed to allow pupils to dress in a professional manner. Wearing the uniform correctly is a very important part of belonging to the Ark Elvin Academy community and pupils must be dressed in the appropriate way. Any pupil who doesn’t have complete school uniform may be asked to change or a parent may be called to bring correct uniform into school.

Uniforms can be bought from Ace Clothing, Magnet Road, Wembley, HA9 7RG.
