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 instill 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 we are putting in place from September, 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.
