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:


  • Alport - Red
  • Eldon - Yellow
  • Kinder - Blue
  • Stanage - Orange
  • Thorpe - Purple




  • Black school blazer with appropriate school house badge
  • Black trousers worn to the waist
  • White shirt, tucked in with buttons up to a firm collar suited to the wearing of a tie
  • School tie worn to the collar
  • Black V-neck pullover made of wool or a similar man-made fibre
  • Black formal shoes (no trainers, canvas type or boots)
  • Plain black/grey socks
  • Fashion belts are not part of school uniform





  • Black school blazer (not a fitted jacket) with appropriate school house badge
  • Formal black knee length school skirt.  Skirts do not have to be bought from a specific supplier, but must be of an appropriate length and material.  Lycra, jersey or stretchy material skirts must not be worn
  • Black tailored trousers (no hipsters, jeans or leggings)
  • White shirt, tucked in with buttons up to a firm collar suited to the wearing of a tie
  • School tie worn to the collar

Please ensure your name is marked inside your bag and clothes.




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 style / colour


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.



Make Up


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.
