About Consilium

Consilium Academies is a multi-academy Trust working across the North of England. It has nine academy schools located in Yorkshire, the North West, and the North East. Consilium is dedicated to enriching lives and inspiring ambitions for both students and colleagues.


We believe that a straightforward, plain and reasonably priced uniform does much to develop a feeling of identity amongst students at school. All students must be in full, correct uniform every day.

      Compulsory items:
  • Blazers: Black blazer with logo*.
  • Shirt: Plain white shirt with collar, short or long sleeved.
  • Tie*: Academy tie.
  • Trousers: Plain black, tailored trousers. Logos or zips etc. are not allowed. The trousers must be the appropriate school trousers with a loose leg fit and not jeggings, jeans or pencil-tight trousers. Trousers must be at a length which covers the ankles.
  • Skirts: Black pleated skirt, of an acceptable length and should sit on or just above the knee and should not be tight-fitting. Girls wearing a skirt must wear 60 denier black tights.
  • Shoes: Plain black polishable, leather upper school shoes.
  • Socks: All students wearing trousers must wear plain black socks with no logos. 
     Optional items:
