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.

Please read the uniform requirements below or have a look at the uniform in the Uniform and Equipment Expectations Booklet below.

  • Shirt:  A blue long or short-sleeved shirt, suitable for a tie.  (No fashion blouses – there must be a top button on the shirt with a stiffened collar.)  Shirts must be tucked in at all times.
