We believe that high standards of dress are important for students as individuals and the Academy as a whole. Our uniform has been chosen because it represents the clearly identifiable standard for The Mirfield Free Grammar. It is straightforward and smart. It is compulsory for all students, and parents are asked to support the staff in monitoring their child's dress. The wearing of some items of clothing relating to religious beliefs is acceptable as long as they are in the Academy colours. The Academy reserves the right to comment upon the suitability of the Academy uniform, hair and appearance.
The suppliers of our Academy uniform are Rawcliffes and Natasha's in Dewsbury.
