As a result of concerns regarding the current cost of living crisis, Bishop Young Academy have made the decision to assist with the purchase of school uniform for the September 2022 Year 7 intake. In recognition of the sharp increase in national insurance contributions and gas and electricity bills, coupled with the fact that many families are still trying to come to terms with the impact of Covid, many may find it difficult to afford the costs of a full uniform when their child transitions to high school.
Bishop Young Academy have therefore decided to provide all students who will be joining us in Year 7 in September 2022, with free blazers and ties. It is hoped that this gesture will go a little way to help our families in these difficult times. If you have applied for a place for your child to start with Bishop Young in September 2022, or you know of any families who have students that may be joining our Academy, please do contact us after National Offer Day on the 1st March 2022 and we will provide details on how you can order your uniform.
If on the 1st March 2022 your child has not been given a place at Bishop Young Academy, and you would like them to attend, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
