Please remember

Academy uniform should not be mixed with non-uniform items. School bags should be an appropriate size and free of graffiti.

The sports clothing specified in the uniform list must be worn for PE and games, and for matches with other schools. All uniform must be clearly labelled. The use of laundry markers is proving to be most effective in the return of mislaid items. In travelling to and from the Academy, while at the Academy, and while representing the Academy at functions or matches, students must wear full Academy uniform. Uniform is also normally to be worn during educational visits.

Equipment

The following items are required to support and enhance the work of your child:

  • 2 x pens
  • 2 x pencils

  • 1 x eraser
  • 1 x ruler (15cm minimum)
  • 1 x glue stick
  • 1 x pack of colouring pencils
  • 1 x highlighter pen
  • 1 x maths scientific calculator
  • 1 x pencil case
  • 1 x reading book

Please note that for safety reasons liquid ink erasers, such as Tippex, are not allowed.

Mobile phones should, under no circumstances, be used in the Academy. If a mobile phone is seen it will be confiscated and contact will be made with the parent/carer about its return. Contact between parents/carers and students and vice versa can always be made through Student Services if there is an emergency.

If a student arrives at school with the incorrect uniform their College Leader / Member of SLT or the Principal may:

  1. Send the student home to change, having first contacted the parents;
  2. Provide a change of uniform;
  3. Send the student to the isolation room to work for the day.

The Principal’s decision on acceptable uniform is final.
