Parents invited to give views on school uniform for new Aberdeen school

The new Lochside Academy

The head teacher of a new Aberdeen school has launched a consultation to decide what pupils will wear to school.

Due to open in August, the £46.9 million school at Bobby Calder Park in Nigg will take students from Cove, Torry and Kincorth.

An online survey for their parents  has now opened after discussions with secondary pupils on the same topic in recent months.

The options include whether trainers will be allowed, the colour of polo shirts and whether senior pupils should be expected to wear a blazer and tie.

Neil Hendry, the school’s executive head teacher, said: “The uniform will be a crucial factor in establishing Lochside Academy.”
