Leigh Academy Blackheath is split into three separate colleges which will be named by our founding year 7 students during our first year. The three colleges will be identified by their unique college colour of either red, turquoise or green.  Blazers will have embroidered academy shields on the breast pocket, with each college having a different colour surround dependant on membership of each college family.  Students will be informed of their college family once they have accepted their place following National Offer Day.

The founders tie will only be available to our first cohort of year 7 students.  From September 2019 students will wear a solid colour college tie embroidered with their college shield.

Uniforms can be bought online from BRIGADE clothing in 2018.
