Uniform

The uniform for our pupils is as follows:

  • Black regulation V-neck jumper, plain knit, with the academy badge and/or black blazer with the academy badge (blazers are not compulsory).  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, shorts or skirts. Shorts must be black and school style (not PE/sports shorts).  Skirts must be the Tenbury High School Eco Senior Straight Skirt in black which is available in 2 lengths from The School Uniform Shop
  • 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.
  • THOA Clip on School Tie – this can only be bought from the Academy Reception Office.
  •  Pupils may wear clear nail varnish, except for practical food lessons. Acrylic or gel nails are not permitted.
  • 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.
  • No more than two ear-studs in each ear.  No other visible studs, rings or piercing adornments may be worn. Ear spacers are not allowed.
  • One ring may be worn. No necklaces, sweatbands or bracelets may be worn, other than one charity bracelet.
