Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy

We will ensure that all children are nurtured, challenged and inspired so that they achieve the best outcomes during their time at our school and contribute positively to society.


The children are encouraged to wear school uniform as it promotes a feeling of identity and pride in the school.

Academy polo shirts, cardigans and sweatshirts are available from reception.

School Uniform

  • Green checked dress or black/dark grey shorts (summer)

  • No nail varnish or visible fake tattoos and, for health and safety reasons, no jewellery of any kind may be worn. If ears are pierced, small plain studs may be worn, but they must be removed before school on days when PE is timetabled (staff are not allowed to remove a child’s earrings).
