King's Lynn Academy Uniform
At King’s Lynn Academy we believe good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and also identify students to the local community and future employers as members of an efficient organisation. The co-operation of parents is requested to ensure that students are in smart uniform at all times.
Students failing to comply with uniform requirements will be sent home to change.
