End of term – We finish for summer break next Friday. Lunch will be at 12midday. Those needing a free packed lunch will collect on the way out. We hope this helps with planning as we enter the final week of the School year.

New Leith Hoodie – We’re a bit late to this party with many other schools adopting this. Following a successful pilot last year with S6 we will be introducing a Leith Academy Hoodie for all from August. The rest of our uniform doesn’t change, this is an additional and optional item that Families may be keen to purchase. PLEASE NOTE the Hoodies will become available on the website from 24th June.

Parents can have the hoodie delivered to School and we will have a distribution ‘handing out’ session at School on August 13th, the day before the pupils start back.


Parents can have it delivered to home for August start date, though this has a cost.

Order form and details / below. This is in reference to the left hand side of the form ‘ Leith Hoodie’
