Pupils in competition to desgin new shool uniform

Have your say

A newly rebranded school in Stamford is holding a competition for the public to design its new school uniform.

Stamford Welland Academy, which was formerly Stamford Queen Eleanor School, wants local residents to help design their new school uniform.

The new uniform will need to represent the school’s two main values - quality and pride and incorporate the three different colours of the houses, which are red, green and blue.

Entrants need to draw their design for the new uniform on an A4 piece of paper and can either scan and e-mail it to uniform@stamfordwellandacademy.org or post it to Uniform Competition, Stamford Welland Academy, Green Lane, Stamford, PE9 1HE.

The closing date for entries is Friday, October 24, when a judging panel will then select the best three designs to take forward to vote for Stamford Welland Academy’s official uniform.

The academy has also recently played host to a member of the House of Lords, who gave a speech about politics and Parliament.

The Lord Norton of Louth met with students for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords, followed by a question and answer session.

The academy was one of the few schools to be selected for the visit this year.

Principal Anthony Partington said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to interact with someone who knows the parliamentary system inside out, as it can sometimes seem far removed from their daily lives.”
