Academy Uniform

Q3 Academies currently has a blue pinstriped Business Dress in each of its Academies. From September 2020, each Academy will be starting a process of transition to a more affordable plain navy ‘Banner’ blazer, trousers and skirt. Our new Year 7, September 2020 intake will be expected to purchase the new navy Business Dress. We will allow students in Years 8-10 to wear a mix of the pinstripe and navy Business Dress until they need the next size. Year 11, can wear either their existing black Q3 logoed uniform or the new navy ‘Banner’ Business Dress.
