New Year 7 learners uniform update 2019/20

If you are joining Dudley Academies Trust at one of the following schools in 2019/20, then please read the following important uniform update:

  • Beacon Hilly Academy, Sedgley.
  • Pegasus Academy, Dudley.
  • St James Academy, Dudley.
  • The Link Academy, Netherton.

We are pleased to announce that all new Year 7 learners joining one of our schools in 2019/20 will be gifted with a free blazer and tie.

Details will follow however; we wanted to ensure you were made aware in the first instance.


At Pegasus we believe all learners should be proud to wear their uniform and respect our school uniform policy. The main Academy uniform is available to purchase from A.Oaks Ltd school uniform supplier, based at 30 Churchill Shopping Centre, Dudley, DY2 7BL. The Academy P.E. Kit is available from Maple Workwear, Units 2 & 3, Chapel Street, Netherton, Dudley, DY2 9PN. 

Our uniform policy allows every member of our school to feel equal, irrespective of their background. By wearing the school uniform our learners can feel smart and professional in their learning and prepared for the world of work.

Wearing the school uniform with pride also allows our learners to represent DAT positively in the local community and beyond.
