Uniform

Uniform is an important part of school life. It creates an equality across all students and helps them prepare for a working life. A smart uniform that is worn correctly can instil a sense of pride in all students about themselves and the school that they attend. Below is a quick visual guide for parents that sets out in full details our expectations of uniform and appearance.

As part of the Covid-19 measures , classrooms will be well-ventilated and cooler than usual.  Therefore students will have the option of wearing a plain black, long sleeved v-neck jumper underneath their blazer. The jumper is not to be worn instead of the blazer at any time in the school day.  There is also the option of a school jumper with a school logo which can be purchased from Academy School Uniforms. 

 

A uniform fitting event for Year 7 students who will be starting in September 2021 will be held in school on 22nd -23rd July from 3-6pm - more details about booking an appointment slot will follow shortly. Orders for uniform should be placed online by 6th August to ensure that they arrive in time for the new term.
