At Biddick Academy we take pride in the high standards we expect of ourselves. We believe the high standard of dress of our students reflects this. The uniform is important in developing students’ identity within the Academy and taking pride in it.
The Academy’s grey v-necked jumper, clip-on tie, tracksuit bottoms, PE T-shirts, and PE sweatshirts are available to purchase from the Academy reception.
Parents/carers are asked to ensure that their children meet the Academy’s expectations.
All items of uniform are to be clearly marked with your child’s name and form group. This will drastically cut down the amount of lost and unclaimed property gathered by the Student Office and the P.E. Department. If students lose an item they should enquire at the Student Office in the first instance. Lost property is kept for one month from the date of being handed in.
Requests to vary the above due to religious beliefs will be considered by the Governing Body and addressed accordingly.
Biddick is a popular and oversubscribed Academy, mainly serving the south of Washington, with around 1100 students on roll. We make a commitment to staffing and as a result we have one of the lowest teacher pupil ratios in the area.
Most of our students have English as a first language; the number of pupils with learning disabilities and the proportion entitled to free school meals are below average.
Please address all enquiries (including general enquiries) to:
Mr P Cowen, Head Teacher
Biddick Lane, Washington, NE38 8AL
