This should be plain, with no obvious logos or markings. Denim, cord, leather and leather-look items and tracksuit tops are not acceptable. Outdoor coats, gloves, hats, caps and scarves must be removed on entry to the building and placed in the student’s school bag or locker.

Bags

Students need a bag which is large enough to hold all Academy equipment including books, pencil case, PE uniform and planner.  Fashion handbags and boot bags are not permitted.

Hair

Hair should be neat and tidy. Extreme or attention seeking styles are not suitable (e.g. bright colours or streaked coloured hair braids or severe shaved styles).

Jewellery

Students may wear a watch but no other items of jewellery at all.

Any jewellery worn in the Academy will be confiscated and held safely until the student's parent or guardian can collect the items at an agreed time.

Make up

Students should not wear excessive make-up to the Academy.  Students wearing excessive make-up will be asked to remove it on entry to the Academy.
