Uniform

All clothing should be clearly named

 The uniform for boys and girls is as follows: 

  • Black regulation V-neck jumper, plain knit, with the academy badge and/or black blazer with the academy badge*.  You can buy a jumper with the badge already embroidered from The School Uniform Shop or you can buy a plain back v neck jumper and buy a jumper badge from the Academy Reception Office.
  • Black regulation trousers or skirt. Skirts should be black. As a minimum length, skirts should sit just above the knee.  Avoid tight, stretchy fabric skirts that are prone to upwards movement.
  • White school shirt, long or short sleeve, not open necked, with a top button and with a large enough collar to allow the top button to be fastened and an academy tie* to be worn.
  • Black polished school shoes, not boots, trainers or canvas.  The shoes should be totally black with a black sole and no markings, motifs or insignia.  The upper should be made of polished leather or polished synthetic material. Please note that the shoes should provide adequate protection for such subjects as Technology, Science, etc.
  • Black socks or tights.

  • Very light make-up may be worn by pupils in Years 10 and 11 only.
  • Pupils’ hairstyles must be appropriate to a professional/learning environment. No unnatural hair colours are permitted, or extreme styles which adversely affect the ethos of the academy.  The Head of Academy or his/her representative will be the judge of whether or not a hairstyle is deemed to be acceptable.
