Additional Items and Issues

  • Girls may wear skirts or trousers but not both. Academy skirts are available and can be worn in two lengths, i.e. knee length or mid-calf length. Skirts must not be shortened or lengthened beyond these limitations.
  • Outdoor coats must be the academy uniform coat for all pupils Years 7-11.
  • No jewellery to be worn, except for a single/ pair of small gold or silver stud earrings in the lobe of each ear and a watch. No other form of body piercing is allowed. Jewellery must be removed before doing P.E. lessons.

  • No make-up or nail varnish may be worn.
  • There should be no hair markings, shaping of the hair or graduating of the hair. Eyebrows must not be shaved or have any markings in them. Hair should not fall over the eyes or, indeed, be untidy in any way. Hair must be business-like and smart.
  • For boys, hair should be tied back in one unit if longer than the top of their collar. Hair must always be kept back off of the face. Hair ties must be red, black or grey.

  • Hair should be worn in a plain style, which does not draw attention or is incongruous with the academy uniform.
