POLO shirts and sweatshirts are out and shirts, ties and blazers are in for the pupils of Thomas Clarkson Academy.

Pupils starting the new school year at the Wisbech secondary school had brand-new uniforms to go with the new-look school and its new name this week.

Learning Ambassadors for the three learning communities – or school houses – shared their thoughts on the uniform with the Citizen and the overall response was positive.

All six Ambassadors think the new uniform is a great step towards the world of work and gives the pupils a sense of pride in their smarter dress.
