Back-to-School Checklist – Be prepared!

Remember: uniform and equipment are checked every day before students enter the Academy.

  • Free items on first day in September: All students will be provided with a student planner and Academy tie. If you would like to donate your old tie to school to be used for loan ties, it would be appreciated.
  • Year 7 only: Free school meal and dessert on their first day. Students will also be provided with a free Academy tie and a free pencil case with the necessary items. Replacements can be purchased on ParentPay.
  • Are you uniform ready? Check the Uniform Requirements for The Bulwell Academy. Small changes were made to the uniform requirements at the end of July 2023.
  • Students need to carry to school every day a suitably sized bag that can be worn on the shoulder/s (ie, large enough to carry A4 size folders and PE kit). Students should bring a pen, pencil and ruler to school every day, along with a refillable bottle and any necessary exercise books (plus PE Kit on PE days).
  • Have you activated and topped up your child’s ParentPay account? If not, please send your child with a packed lunch or, if entitled, make sure Free School Meals are in place by contacting Nottingham City Pupil Benefits. If you require your login details for ParentPay, please email
  • It is essential that we have up to date contact details on our system. If you need to update your details, please email
  • For any further queries, please email:

After-School Activities

A new timetable will be issued at the beginning of term with a new consent form to sign your child up for activities. Clubs will begin during Week Two of term. Club memberships from last year will all be cancelled and we will start afresh, so you will need to complete the new consent form, once available, if your child wishes to attend after-school activities.
