We are proud of our young people and encourage them to be proud of their school and their community. One key aspect of this is that all of our students will wear a smart uniform. This promotes safety, a sense of community and demonstrates that students are ready to work.
Students must be impeccably presented in the correct school uniform at all times. The KAA uniform consists of a grey blazer, striped tie (in house colours)*, maroon jumper, white shirt or blouse and dark grey trousers. Girls can choose between a pleated skirt or trousers.
*please note that when your child joins KAA their house tie will be allocated to them on their first day and you will need to pay for it via ParentPay. It does not need to be purchased in advance with the rest of your child’s uniform.
