Uniform

We strongly believe that school uniform gives our students a sense of identity and of belonging to the academy

It helps to ensure that no student feels disadvantaged in terms of appearance, removes the need to keep up with constantly changing and expensive fashion trends, and instils a sense of pride.

We understand that it is not always possible for students to wear the full, correct uniform. Please contact your child’s form tutor to discuss any problems which you may have. If students come to school without the correct uniform, the school will provide temporary uniform and contact parents if necessary so that students remain in classes as much as possible. Temporary uniform can include plimsolls, ties and PE kit.

If any student refuses to wear the correct uniform, this may be dealt with as a disciplinary matter.
