How to purchase Southfields Academy uniform.

As part of Stitch Design’s commitment to minimise risk to students, parents/carers and staff, we have had to make changes to how uniform at Southfields Academy can be purchased this year.

IMPORTANT: You will NOT be able to purchase uniform directly from the uniform shop

You will now need to order your uniform online by visiting Stitch Design’s website at www.stitchdesign.co.uk.

  • The first time you order you will need to register, please enter the Academy’s postcode

(SW18 5JU) when required to ensure you register for the correct school.

  • Once signed in you should place and pay for your order. If you have any difficulties please call the Stitch Design technical support line on 01256 771999.
  • There will be a weekly cut-off for orders every Sunday at midnight.
  • Any orders placed online before then will be available to collect at the Academy on Wednesdays between 1.00pm and 3.30pm
  • You will need to show your order confirmation in order to receive your purchases.
  • On arrival at the collection point (Burr Road – Main Reception), parents /carers should observe social distancing practices and queue along the Academy fence line where markings on the pavement are placed.
  • WARNING: If your order is placed after the cut-off you will have to wait another week before your order is ready to collect, so please do not leave it late.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Q: How do I know which size to order?
A: In the online shop, all items will either have a ‘to-fit’ size, measured in inches, or you can click on the ‘Size Guide’ and find out what the recommended ‘to-fit’ size for that item is. ‘To-fit’ will either be a chest or waist measurement, dependent on the garment.

Please try on your new garments when you get home in case they do not fit (see below).

Q: What if I order the wrong size?
A: You will need to email Stitch Design at online@stitchdesign.co.uk, giving them your order reference. State which item(s) need to be exchanged and for which size(s). As long as you do this by the Sunday cut-off, your new items will be available to collect on Wednesday. Please bag up the items you are returning and bring them along, with your ORIGINAL order confirmation, to exchange.

Q: What if I do not have online access or a card to make a payment with?
A: Order forms are available to collect every Wednesday at Southfields Academy between the hours of (10:00am – 3:00pm). Parents/carers can complete and either hand it back to Stitch Design staff, or complete and post to the address stated. Please make sure you include a telephone number, so you can be contacted for payment, or attach a cheque made payable to Stitch Design Ltd, for the correct value. As long as the form is received at Stitch Design by the Sunday cut-off, and a payment is taken, then your replacement items will be available to collect on Wednesday.

For all other questions please contact Stitch Design

Due to these changes it is vital that you order your child’s uniform as early as possible, to ensure that they have the correct uniform prior to  returning in September.


All students except the 6th Form are expected to wear the full Academy uniform. We ask parents to assist us by providing the uniform and by encouraging their daughters/sons to take pride in their dress.

  • All students must wear plain black leather shoes – no trainers are allowed.
  • Socks and tights must be plain black only.
  • Hooded garments, jean jackets, leather/faux leather jackets are not acceptable.
  • Jewellery – one pair of small stud earrings may be worn, one in each lobe.  
  • Only natural hair colours are acceptable.
  • No visible tattoos, no facial piercings.
  • Plain black coat – no logos, emblems or markings

Uniform shop

The uniform shop, on site, is open each Tuesday from 1.40pm-3pm.  The current price list is available to download at the bottom of this page.

If you have any questions about what constitutes acceptable uniform or would like guidance about items purchased elsewhere and their suitability as uniform then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mr D. Holt, Deputy Headteacher at the Academy. 

It must be emphasised that Southfields Academy uniform (items which display the emblem) can only be purchased from the Academy shop. Any other supplier offering such items displaying the Academy emblem is doing so illegally.
