Academy pupils are really smart... in their new free uniforms!

EVERY pupil at a new academy in Weston has been given a full set of school uniform for free.

Hans Price Academy in Marchfields Way gave the uniform to each of its 750 pupils at the start of last term after it changed from Wyvern Community School.

The uniform would have cost parents up to �72.50 for each pupil.

Principal Armando Di-Finizio said: “It was decided as an initial opening initiative to give every student a free blazer, tie and PE kit to ensure everyone began in the new school on an equal footing.

“We knew from previous experience in other schools in the Cabot Learning Federation that a smart new uniform would give the students a sense of pride in their academy and their community.
