Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

The Academy uniform is an important part of our collective identity and sense of community.

Students at Harris Academy Bermondsey are expected to wear the uniform in its entirety to the Academy on all occasions. It is important that students always present themselves as ambassadors of the Academy including when they are in public places or travelling to and from the Academy.

Our uniform supplier

Our blazer, jumper, blouses and PE t-shirt are available only from Stevenson’s, a family run, specialist uniform and sportswear provider who currently work with over 550 schools across the UK. You can purchase these items:

All non-branded items of the Academy uniform (such as trousers and skirts) can be purchased from any supplier. You will need to log-in or register with Stevenon's to buy branded school uniform online or make an in-store appointment. This is an easy process but you may like to watch a video created by Stevenson's to take you through the process.  

Uniform Bank (Swap Shop)

Uniforms can be expensive, family circumstances can change and sometimes keeping your children clean and warm can be more difficult than you would ever imagine. 

We are very pleased to be able to have an  Academy Uniform Bank which is intended to help families by providing free items of school uniforms including PE kits and shoes. Anyone is welcome to donate pre-loved clothing or collect anything they may need, subject to availability. Please help us to continue to help as many families as possible. 

Our academy community has been extremely generous in previous years, and we have been able to help families. The Uniform Bank is available throughout the school year. Please contact reception on with requests for items of uniform, or to make a donation.
