School Uniform/Dress Code
All uniform items should be marked with your name and form
We believe high standards of uniform contribute to the ethos of the Academy. We take great pride in the appearance of our students and expect parents and standards to fully comply the Academy’s uniform expectations.
Please be aware, we have a new House System in place with every student and member of staff assigned to one of five houses. When purchasing your child’s blazer, please ensure the badge is of the appropriate house colour.
House colours are:
One plain ring, one pair of stud earrings or small sleepers. No other jewellery or piercings, including facial and tongue, are permitted. No stretchers, bars, spikes, or other inappropriate jewellery.
Hair must not be cut shorter than Grade 2 and must not have patterns, shapes or be dyed with bright colours. Natural hair colours are allowed. If in doubt, check with the Headteacher before having a cut-treatment. Any hairstyle or dress which, in the view of the principal or his authorised representative, may cause others fear, or which may cause excessive comment or distress, will not be allowed, to help prevent bullying and support community cohesion.
In all cases shaved heads, except for medical reasons required by a medical doctor, are not permitted.
It is the judgement call of the Headteacher if a haircut is deemed unsuitable.
Students are allowed to wear makeup. This should be subtle, excessive amounts will not be tolerated. False and acrylic nails are not permitted. Nail varnish colours should also be subtle. The length of nails should be appropriate for the health and safety of all curriculum areas.
An Outer Coat
The following are not part of our uniform – Denim, leather, heavily logoed.
The wearing of baseball caps, other hats and hoodies is not permitted.
Please consult members of the Leadership Team or your Progress Manager if you have any questions or queries with these standards.
