OUTDOOR COATS & BAGS

Bag - Students require a plain school bag, which can be fastened securely in Y10 & Y11. All other year groups must have a blue academy back pack.

HAIRSTYLES

Hairstyles and colour should be sensible. No offensive patterns should be shaven into hairstyles. Hair accessories should be discreet and black or purple, no scarves or bandanas (unless for religious reasons).

JEWELLERY

No jewellery is allowed except a wristwatch and Medic Alert necklace or bracelet. If any student is thinking about having their ears pierced, this should be done at the start of the summer holidays, as no student will be allowed to wear earrings.

NAIL POLISH & MAKE UP

Nail polish is not allowed.

Any make up worn by older students should be very discreet. Student will be asked to remove make up if it is not discreet.

OTHER EQUIPMENT

All students will need a pen, pencil, ruler and rubber. A scientific calculator, such as SHARP EL-W531, a pair of compasses, a protractor and a dictionary would also be useful.

You must bring a full change of PE kit to every PE lesson even if you have a note and are not taking part. If you do not have your PE kit then you must borrow some from school. Failure to do so will mean you receive a C5. If you do not bring your PE kit but still borrow from school more than once in a half term then you will receive a C4 detention and every time you do not bring kit thereafter.

Please note: Students will not be reminded of our uniform policy and will be issued with an SLT detention if it is not adhered to at all times.

All students in Year 7-11 are required to wear the Academy uniform, jackets must be worn, with shirts tucked in at ALL TIMES. Academy jumpers can be worn under their jacket. In classes, Academy blazers can be removed with the approval of the class teacher. On very hot days, the Principal may notify students that they are allowed to remove their blazers. On such occasions, blazers must be carried and never forced into bags or tied around the waist. Blazers must always be worn on corridors and when entering or leaving the Academy grounds as the start of the day.

Any items of clothing, jewellery or hair accessories that do not adhere to the above policy will be confiscated and an SLT detention will be issued. Parents may wish to collect these items at the end of the Academy day.

NB: The final decision with regard to all issues relating to uniform will be made by the Principal.
