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. Navy blue blazer with Abbey Grange crest. Plain white school style shirt with top button fastened and of sufficient length to be worn inside trousers or skirts. School tie to be worn clipped at the neck.

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.
