Examples of Acceptable and Unacceptable Uniform

 

Personal Appearance and Uniform Policy: Years 7-11

The Academy uniform should be worn properly at all times, including between home and the Academy.

Make up:  fake tan, false or painted nails, false eye lashes are not permitted.  Students in Years 9-11 may however wear light / discreet make up.

Hair:  the Academy does not permit high fashion or extreme hairstyles, nor unusual patterns or shapes in the hair.  Hair should not be of unusual / unnatural colours.  Discreet tints / highlights of natural colour are permitted.  Items such as Alice bands  / hair bands should be plain black and worn only if holding the hair in place and not as a fashion accessory. No adornments to be worn in the hair.

Shoes:  should be “sensible” for all aspects of the Academy day and site, should be black, and protect the foot.  Shoes should be low heeled and free from motifs / designs.  Plain black boots may be worn under trousers, (but not with skirts) as long as the trouser meets the ankle and the boot is not visible. For snowfall, appropriate footwear such as waterproof / leather boots may be worn with Academy uniform.

Coats & hats:  sports tops, denim, leather / leather look jackets, hooded tops, fashion jackets, sweatshirts, baseball caps, flat-caps, do-rags and other items are not to be worn on site.  Such items will be confiscated and handed to Head of Year to follow up with the student / parent / carer.  A warm outdoor coat (no hoodies or sportswear) may be worn over the blazer but not in place of the blazer.  A small logo / brand / badge is allowed.  Dark colours encouraged.

Jewellery:  no jewellery other than one pair of plain silver / gold studs in the ear lobes, one simple ring per hand and one bracelet / watch should can worn.  No facial or body piercings are allowed due to student safety.  Nose piercings are not part of the Academy uniform and as such, parents are asked to support the Academy by not allowing students to opt for nose piercings unless at the start of the summer holiday.  A retainer must be worn at all times on Academy site. Banned items will be confiscated on first sight and handed to Head of Year.  No large or sovereign type rings permitted.

Trousers:  must be black fabric (ideally hard-wearing) and not overly tight, or of stretchy material.  Leather, denim, jeans, jeggings, leggings, combat trousers, amongst others, are not allowed.  School trousers should not require studs, zips, or logos and should meet the shoe / boot at the ankle and not grip the lower leg. (Where a student has outgrown their trousers, black socks should be worn to avoid drawing attention).

Skirts:  should be black and worn either on, or a few centimetres above the knee.  Shorter skirts, or those that are very tight / do not allow free movement / see-through material are not permitted.  

Ties:  must be clean, not be defaced in any way and must be tied properly, with the appropriate emblem showing.  Ties that have been defaced will be removed and a new tie will need to be purchased the following day from reception.  

Blazers:  with the Academy badge must be worn at all times, unless given permission for it to be removed by the class teacher. In hot weather the Principal will inform students if blazers may be removed for the day. 

Shirts:  should be tucked into trousers / skirt at all times and top button fastened with tie covering. 

Phones:  should be turned off and be out of sight at all times, anywhere on Academy site.  Phones / earphones will be confiscated if seen and handed into reception, for parents to collect after school.

Please note that failure to follow the Academy uniform policy may result in your child being sent home to correct the situation.  Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name. Expensive items should not be brought into the Academy and should remain at home.  This is not an exhaustive list and any decisions made about uniform will be at the Principal’s discretion.

Sixth Form students are required to wear smart professional business clothing. For more information please see our
Sixth Form Dress Code.
