We believe that wearing a smart school uniform is an important sign that our pupils take pride in belonging to Ark Boulton Academy and are willing to take part in all aspects of school life.

It is expected that all pupils will travel to and from the academy every day in neat and clean uniform, giving the clear message to the public that our pupils take pride in belonging to the Academy.

Anyone who fails to do so will be sent home to change their uniform or kept out of lessons for the day.
