Uniform

All students of Richmond Park Academy are required to wear full school uniform at all times. We believe that looking smart helps develop pride and confidence. As such we expect all of our students to respect the uniform policy. If there are any specific reasons why there would be a difficulty with that please contact us. You can view the complete uniform policy here.

All uniform with the academy logo has to be purchased from Stevenson's Uniform Shop. Uniform can be purchased online or at the shop in Twickenham. They also offer an appointment service. If you wish to use the online booking service, please register with Stevensons via their website. Uniform will be available from Stevensons from Monday 12 June.
