  • Trainers and canvas shoes – whether or not they are black - are not acceptable.

Coats

  • For outdoor use, either an anorak or overcoat, of a plain dark colour and style. 
  • All topcoats should be substantial and suitable for school wear. 
  • Jackets decorated with slogans or pictorial or other designs are not acceptable.
  • Academy hoodies are acceptable to wear as an outdoor coat 
  • Other hoodies (not issued by the Academy) are not acceptable

Aprons

  • A plain white apron is required for practical Technology lessons.
  • Chef’s whites are required for practical Food Technology lessons.

 Jewellery

  • The maximum students are allowed to wear is one watch; one signet ring; one pair of earrings, which must be studs or sleepers (one in each ear). 
  • Staff reserve the right to ask pupils to remove jewellery/make-up that they consider to be inappropriate for School.
  • The Academy accepts no responsibility for the loss or theft of such items.
  • Body piercing is not permitted (other than one piercing per ear). Students will not be permitted to have any part of their face pierced and it is not acceptable for a student to have piercings with see-through plastic bars, rings etc.
  • Tongue piercing is not acceptable.
  • For Health & Safety reasons, the Academy does not permit body piercing (apart from single small earrings / studs as above). Students with body piercings will be isolated.

 Make-up/Hair

  • In Years 7 and 8 make-up or nail varnish is not permitted.
  • In Years 9-11 make-up, if worn, should be discreet.  Nail varnish is not permitted.
  • Extreme hair colour or style; parents are urged to check with the Academy. Students who have extreme hairstyles will be isolated.  Very short hair or hair with designs cut in will be considered ‘extreme’. Any hair colour that is unnatural and not subtle will be challenged – students with such hair will be isolated.

 Failure to Comply

  • Students who do not conform to our regulations will be challenged and we hope to receive the support of parents in sorting things out quickly. 
  • If the problem is not rectified, however, the student will be educated in isolation from their peers.  Whereas the Academy will do their best to keep progress moving, isolation for any length of time is likely to undermine such progress.

General Guidance

All clothes must be of a conventional style, clean, in good repair and should not be faded. 
Students wearing clothes of a style or in a condition unacceptable to the Head will be required to change them.  
We require students to leave the current fashions and fads to their lives out of school.  We will not accept clothes or styles that represent a culture we believe to be at odds to a culture and environment of learning. 
Hoodies issued through the Academy may be used as a coat but not as a substitute for the sweatshirt. Academy issued Hoodies must be taken off in all lessons and assemblies.

All items should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.
