Dear Parent/Carer

Academy Uniform – September 2024

You will remember that in April of this year, Mr Russell wrote to families informing you of the renaming of The Halley Academy to Leigh Academy Halley.  This is in line with the renaming of several academies within Leigh Academies Trust.  The renaming of our Academy will benefit our learning community in a number of ways.  Mr Russell outlined that many current and prospective parents/carers are unaware of the very strong links between ourselves and two other highly successful secondary schools in Greenwich – Leigh Academy Blackheath and Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy. A clearer brand identity will reinforce that we are one learning community, and we can use this to attract more students and staff to be part of the Leigh Academies Trust network. We have seen firsthand how excellent new teachers and leaders want to join our Academy because we are part of a Trust synonymous with providing a world-class education. As a proudly outward-looking, collaborative and excellence-driven Academy, we look forward to continuing to play an active role in this network of Academies. Other schools in the future will also gain a similar boost from this explicit recognition of this partnership.  

With our new name, we have taken the opportunity to refresh and modernise our Academy branding, which includes student uniforms. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that all existing uniform items currently in circulation can continue to be worn into the new academic year and beyond. All new uniform items that are ordered from now will have the new Leigh Academy Halley logo. Our uniform providers remain the same as does the process for purchasing uniforms.  Brigade has informed us that the deadline for orders to ensure delivery before the start of the new academic year is Friday 26th July 2024.

We are really excited to become Leigh Academy Halley from September 2024; this change will enhance our position as part of a very confident and successful group of schools keen to use its wider capacity for the benefit of current and future students, families, and partners.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact us at

Thank you for your continued support of all our work at the Academy.  

Yours faithfully,

Karen Cronin | Deputy Principal
