Uniform

All students in Year 7 to 11 are required to wear the approved Academy dress.  We expect high standards of work and behaviour from our students, and believe that these are helped by high standards of dress and appearance.  We expect all parents/carers to support our simple and practical requirements.

Summer Uniform (Optional)

Pale blue polo shirt with school crest in lieu of white shirt/tie, to be worn tucked in to skirt or trousers.

Please note the following

  1. Blazers are to be worn throughout the school day unless permission from a member of staff has been given to remove them.
  2. Jean, cord, tracksuit and other high fashion style trousers including combat trousers, leggings, hipsters and ski pants are not permitted.
  3. Patterned, sports and polo style shirts are not acceptable.
  4. The only items of jewellery/adornments a student may wear are a wrist watch and a simple cross and chain. Earrings may not be worn or covered. Other piercings and adornments are not permitted.
  5. False nails or nail extensions/ nail varnish are not permitted.
  6. Students in Year 10 and 11 may wear discreet make-up.
  7. Extremes of hairstyle including patterns, designs, lines cut into hair, unnaturally dyed hair colours and closely shaved hair are not permitted.
  8. Belts if worn must be plain black.
  9. Fashion badges not to be worn in school.
  10. Shoes should not be ‘trainer style’ and/or have flashes, logos, patterns or with coloured soles (examples of suitable shoes can be found in the separate booklet).
  11. Parents/carers who wish to vary the stated guidelines regarding headwear on religious grounds are asked to seek advice from the Principal, Mr J Norden.  Please note that no variation will be allowed until this discussion has taken place.

Good quality second-hand uniform is also available from the PTA.  Please contact the General Office if you are interested.

Outdoor Coats

Whilst we do not wish to be too prescriptive about outdoor clothing, we would request that students wear plain, dark coloured, practical coats which offer good protection in bad weather.  The term ‘coat’ does not include sweatshirts, cardigan, hooded top, logo/stripped jackets etc. worn instead of outdoor coats.

Outdoor coats must not be worn in class.

The wearing of any item of denim clothing is not acceptable.

Caps or hoods must not be worn on the Academy site.  Hats may be worn outside in inclement weather.
The Principal reserves the right to send home any student whom she considers to be inappropriately dressed, whether in terms of the stated Academy guidelines, or of safety, decency or practicality.
