You are here: Home » Our School » About us » Uniform


We think it is important that, as an Academy, we set high standards in all that we do.  The Academy is a place of work for everyone who attends.  As such, we expect students to come to school dressed in an appropriate manner, in the agreed Academy uniform.


Uniform is:

  • Black blazer with school badge in appropriate College colour – badge available to purchase from the Academy at a cost of £3.00
  • Black school skirt, to be worn no shorter than just above the knee, worn with plain black tights (skirts only to be purchased from our uniform supplier Trutex, no other skirt may be worn).
  • Black school trousers (these must not be made of denim or stretch material, or be skin tight).
  • Plain black v-neck long sleeved jumper (optional)  – can only be worn under, but not as an alternative to, the school blazer.
  • White shirt and appropriate Academy tie or white blouse with revere collar – no tie.  The tie is available to purchase from the Academy for £4.00.
  • Flat, plain black shoes or ankle boots – no stripes, no piping, no canvas
  • No trainers or canvas plimsolls.

Joma Size Guide for PE Kit


Students are only permitted to wear a wristwatch and one small stud in each earlobe (no other jewellery or piercings are allowed) – bracelets, charity bands, stretchers, tunnels, plugs and retainers are NOT allowed. The exception to this is artefacts of a religious character, where possible these should be worn under clothing, and medical alert bracelets, bands or chains. There should be minimal make up, no nail varnish and no gel or acrylic nails. Students should avoid extreme hairstyles and the use of non-natural hair colours. The Principal reserves the right to decide if make-up is minimal or a particular hairstyle is unacceptable.

All jewellery should be removed for PE lessons.  PE staff are not responsible for checking for body piercings nor do they have the time.  Any injury which results from jewellery not being removed is the responsibility of the student and not the Academy.
