Ordering for shirts, blouses and PE kit please click the link below:


All items of uniform and PE kit should be marked with the student’s name, preferably in indelible ink.


General Appearance

  • Students should dress smartly at all times – Full and correct uniform must be worn. We will send home anyone in inappropriate clothing to change.
  • Extreme hairstyles and colours are not permitted.  Discreet make-up is permissible for girls and should be barely noticeable. Use of excessive make up and coloured nail varnish is unacceptable and persistent infringement will result in a detention.
  • Proper school shoes must be worn – no trainers and no canvas shoes. A student in trainers or canvas shoes must go straight to their House office to change into plimsolls.
  • Scarves and coats must not be worn inside the Academy
  • When an item is confiscated we will return it to the student on the first confiscation at the end of the school day. The second time it is confiscated a parent must sign for it at Reception before it is returned. Further confiscations will result in sanctions such as a detention.  This includes mobile phones.

Mobile Phones and MP3 Players

These items are brought into the Academy at the student’s own risk.  The Academy takes no responsibility for their loss or damage. 

Students are welcome to come to and from school with these devices, but as soon as they enter the school grounds they must be turned off and placed in the student's school bag out of sight, this includes break and lunchtime. If seen staff will follow the confiscation rule which is that the student will be asked to hand it to the member of staff who will then place it in a named envelope and hand it in at the main office.  At the first confiscation the student will be able to collect it at the end of the day, consequent confiscations will require a parent or appropriate adult to collect the device and on the third and consecutive occasions a sanction will be given. 

Jewellery & Belts

  • The only acceptable jewellery is a single stud earring worn centrally in each ear and one small ring.
  • No fashion belts.

(Any items, other than these, will be confiscated on sight.)


You must have your planner with you at all times. If you lose it you will be required to pay for a new one.


Take care of your timetable.  If you lose it you will need to pay 10p for a replacement copy available from Reception during break time, lunchtime or before or after school only.

Leaving the Premises

Any student who needs to leave the premises during the Academy day must have a note from their parent/carer.  This note must be shown to Reception when the student signs out.

Eating and Drinking

Food must be eaten in the Dining Hall, Main Hall (except during times of closure such as exam season) or outside.  There is to be no eating in the classrooms or corridors at any time.


Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the Academy premises or grounds.  Cigarettes, e-cigarettes, lighters and matches will be confiscated and destroyed.

Illegal Substances

Possession of illegal substances in Academy will result in permanent exclusion.


Students are not allowed out of bounds.  The Leisure Centre is out of bounds to students unless accompanied by a member of staff.
