Ercall Wood Academy

Empower | Respect | Aspire


Our students are proud to wear our uniform because they are proud to be part of Ercall Wood Academy. A uniform promotes a feeling of unity and a sense of belonging.

We are a culturally inclusive school, and we will always strive to meet cultural and religious requirements within our school dress code policy. Please note we would request parents provide written confirmation should they wish for their child to continue to wear religious jewellery during PE sessions due to the risks associated in wearing jewellery in sport
