The Academy Day



We are keen to maintain a level of professional dress and avoid our uniform being customised or compromised. Your support in keeping our high standards is appreciated.

As parents/carers please consider when allowing your children to change their appearance for a holiday, special occasion etc. that there is sufficient time to fall in line with the Academy Dress Code in time for their return to school. For example, if your child was to have a piercing it would need to be removed before returning to school. Likewise, if your child wants to dye their hair a non-natural colour or style it would need to be washed out or be rectified before school returns.

Some key areas of change are:

  • NO mobile phones to be visible or out of bags during the Academy day
  • NO make-up
  • Skirts – must be knee length and worn with black tights

Please read below to see the full uniform guidelines and notes on appearance/standards:


  • Blazer academy design with logo
  • Charcoal Grey V-neck pullover with Academy Logo 
  • Academy clip-on tie with stripe to represent appropriate House colour
  • Charcoal grey trousers
  • White shirt (standard school type) -to be tucked in
  • Black shoes (polishable) *
  • All outdoor coats/jackets/hoodies be removed before entering the Academy building – lockers are available to store such items.
  • Coloured accessory scarves, football scarves, hats and caps are forbidden. (Religious black scarves are permitted)
