School Uniform

School Uniform

Our Academy uniform is smart and distinctive and should be worn with pride. We expect an excellent personal appearance and behaviour to be maintained by every student at all times during the school day and on their journey to and from school. It is NOT acceptable to wear trainers, sweatshirts, tracksuit tops, hoodies or denim jackets. All items of uniform should be clean and well kept.

Skirts should be of a reasonable length and shorts/cycling shorts are not permitted under skirts.
