Havelock Academy

Our goal is to provide excellent opportunities in an open, positive and purposeful climate for all to achieve excellence, become lifelong learners and responsible, successful, well rounded citizens.


From May 2017, Uniform Direct will be the sole supplier of the Academy’s uniform.

Purchases may be made from their premises in Grimsby or online at 

Wearing of the uniform with pride and having a smart appearance are two important aspects of Academy life.  The students' capacity for self-expression as distinctive individuals meets the Academy's wish to educate its members in the values of smartness and good appearance. Extremes of fashion, in terms of clothing, decency, make-up, jewellery and perfume are inappropriate. Thus, good hygiene and clean clothes, provide a starting point for appearance which should be understated, modest and uncontroversial.
