We have a formal uniform and we expect every child to attend school looking smart in full uniform every day.  Good attendance is essential to success at school and all students are expected to have an excellent attendance record and be punctual.


Indoor clothing, boys and girls:

  • black blazer (a plain black blazer will be compulsory from September 2022 for New Y7s, Y8 - Y11  blazers will be phased in)

  • plain white shirt or blouse

  • School tie (from September 2022 each year group will have a different colour tie. More info is below)

  • plain black trousers or appropriate length of black skirt (no lycra)

  • plain black socks

  • plain black shoes suitable for school wear

  • Optional black V- neck jumper with school badge in addition to the blazer

We are pleased to inform you that we are able to supply your child with one of each of the following items: A blazer, A tie, A PE top, and PE shorts. Parents will be required to supply the other items. We believe that our uniform is smart, yet cost effective.

A jumper must have the school badge on and can be purchased from Ziggy’s in Harpurhey Shopping Centre. Plain black blazers can be purchased from most supermarkets and retail outlets, such as Asda, Tesco and Matalan.

Each Year group will have a different tie from September 2022 and this will be given free to all students in the first instance. Replacements can be purchased from the school reception

All students should also carry equipment to and from the Academy in a bag; each child will also be able to use a locker. Your child should attend the Academy in full school uniform every day.

Students new to MCA will be given a voucher to receive a free uniform, including school jumper, tie, PE top and shorts.

Swap Shop

We are also introducing a ‘swap shop’. Please donate to us any old uniform that your child has grown out of that is still in good condition.  Uniform can be handed in to reception. The swap shop will enable you to swap any donated item for any other item in the swap shop. The more families that support us in this, the more choice we will have.


Any parent/ carer who donates uniform but does not require an exchange will receive a raffle ticket with family hampers, vouchers and treats to be won! All items are really appreciated, including PE kit and trainers.

If any student or families require support with the cost of uniform please contact us via
