Summer Holiday Homework

We will mail summer holiday homework to you on July 17th to help your child prepare for learning at secondary school.


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. See all items of our uniform at

Uniforms can be bought from Ace Clothing, 5A Courtenay Road, East Lane Business Park, East Lane, Wembley, HA9 7ND. Purchases can also be made on their website

Important message from ACE Clothing on purchasing uniforms during the coronavirus pandemic

Whilst parents can order uniforms online via our website for home delivery or collection from our store, ACE Clothing will also offer a strict appointment service on a Monday and Tuesday only between 9.30am – 5pm from June 15th 2020. Customers can call to book their appointment on 0208 045 0296. Please note it is strictly one adult and one child per booking. Social distancing measures and government guidelines will be adhered to.

It is extremely important that all parents/carers plan ahead and order uniform as early as possible to avoid any disappointment.

Learning Equipment

All pupils must use an official Ark Elvin Academy bag. This can either be the academy branded rucksack or book bag supplied by Ace Clothing.

Every day, pupils must bring to school with them:

  • Exercise books needed for that day
  • Pupil planner – This will be provided to pupils on the first day of school
  • Reading book
  • PE kit (on the days that they have PE) in an Ark Elvin PE bag
