Uniform

Wearing a uniform shows that we all belong to the Academy and we expect all students to follow these simple guidelines. We are thankful for the support of parents and carers in making sure students come to school in the correct uniform.

All pupils have to wear:

  • Black blazer with Academy logo
  • Black trousers or skirt
  • White shirt
  • Year group tie
  • Plain black leather/faux leather shoes
  • Black ankle length or below the knee socks or black tights

Pupils can also choose to wear a plain black jumper under their blazer. If a pupil wishes to wear a headscarf or turban, we ask that is that the material is plain black.

We also ask pupils to bring a sensible school bag, pencil case with stationery, a student planner and a suitable waterproof outside coat.

Each year group has their own colour tie-

Year 7 – black with gold stripes

Year 8 – black with purple stripes

Year 9 –  black with blue stripes

Year 10 – black with green stripes

Year 11 – black with white stripes

PE Kit

  • Royal blue PE shirt (with logo)
  • Black shorts (with logo)
  • Royal blue football socks/ plain sports socks
  • Sports trainers

Students also have the option of wearing:

  • Plain black tracksuit (with logo)
  • Academy black sports/dance leggings (no other leggings can be worn)

Uniform Rules

No hoodies, hats or caps, or outerwear is allowed to be worn in the Academy buildings. We suggest these are kept in the student’s locker or bag, to avoid any issues.

Jewellery, body piercings and make-up are not a part of the Academy uniform. This includes nails, which must be natural and of an acceptable length due to health and safety requirements.

Trainers of any sort, this includes converse are not permitted in the Academy except during practical PE sessions. Footwear that is branded with a sports logo or name is also not permitted. All shoes must be black leather/faux leather.

Pupils are not permitted to attend the Academy with any form of pattern shaved into their heads or eyebrows. Mohican style haircuts and unnatural colouring to hair, including braids, are also not accepted.

If you have any questions please contact your child’s Year Team and remember information about uniform can be found in the student planners.
