Secondary Uniform

The wearing of Academy uniform is compulsory for all pupils and a high standard of dress is required at all times. We consider that uniform is important because:

  • It provides students with a sense of identity and pride in their academy.
  • It enhances the appearance of students and therefore the reputation of the academy.
  • It helps to instil in students a sense of purpose when they put on their uniform in the mornings.

We expect students to arrive each day with the correct equipment so they are ready to start work. Please check the Uniform and Equipment Expectations Booklet - click on the image to open:
