Uniform

All students in Year 7 to 11 are required to wear the approved school uniform. We expect high standards of work and behaviour from our students, and believe that these are helped by high standards of dress and appearance. All items of school uniform are worn conventionally and we expect all Parents/Carers to support our simple and practical requirements.

Our uniform is as follows:

  • Black blazer with Academy crest
  • Plain white school style shirt / blouse with top button fastened and of sufficient length to be tucked into trousers or skirt
  • Academy tie to be worn clipped at neck
