Introducing our new Salford City Academy recycled uniform scheme

We know how expensive school uniform can be and how quick students grow! With this in mind and to continue to be able to support the SCA Community, we welcome parents and carers to bring in any uniform that their children have grown out of so that we can offer it to other families to reuse. 


Q: Where do I drop off items? 

A: Uniform can be dropped in at reception at any time.  On the lead up to the two key times of the year where we will hold a recycled uniform event, we will send out reminders and students can bring in any items that they want to be recycled to their tutor room where boxes will be available for the collection of these items. 


Q: When can SCA families come to the recycling events? 

A: The recycled uniform stalls will be held twice yearly on site at the Academy. 

  •  February half term 
  •  Start of the summer holidays
