durand academy


In 2015, Durand Academy became one of the first schools in the country to provide our pupils with school uniform free of charge.

We believe that school uniform unites our children with a sense of pride in their school, and focuses minds on teaching and learning which is important to helping build self-esteem and confidence. Wearing of school uniform is therefore compulsory.

The Durand Academy uniform (Reception to Year 9) consists of:

• Royal blue blazer with gold trimming and Durand crest
• Grey school trousers/shorts, skirts and pinafores
• Black, grey or white socks
• Plain black shoes (slip on shoes, boots and shoes with heels are not acceptable)
• Grey Durand V neck jumper with blue and gold trim
• White shirts
• School tie (Reception -Year 2 elasticated, Year 3 – Year 6 Tie, Year 7 to Year 9 clip on)
• Hijab plain grey or royal blue

Summer Uniform:

• Girls – Yellow and white checked summer dress
• Boys – Grey shorts
