The uniform for The Leigh Academy Bexley has been designed by students and staff with style, durability, comfort, availability and of course affordability in mind. It was designed to inspire students and instil a sense of pride. We expect them to dress and behave in a way that reflects the standards we seek to achieve. 

Please make sure that all items of the uniform are clearly marked with the student’s name. Jewellery is not permitted to be worn, other than a wristwatch and one small stud in the lower ear lobes. Other piercings, acrylic or painted nails, false eyelashes, smart watches are not permitted to be worn at the Academy.
