Only plain black shoes are allowed to be worn with the uniform. No trainers, boots, pumps or canvas shoes will be allowed. Heels should be no higher that 2.5 cm/1inch.
n.b. – If students are not wearing the correct footwear they will be expected to borrow a pair of shoes from the student information desk – the shoes will be treated with a hygienic spray after each use. Failure to wear the shoes provided will result in an exclusion (refusing a reasonable request).
Outdoor coats should be dark in colour, e.g. black or navy and should have no large logos. Please note, hoodies, fur, denim and studded leather jackets are not allowed.
Outdoor coats should be removed at the entrance to the Academy buildings as outdoor wear is not permitted indoors.
Students require a school bag which can fit in an Academy planner and A4 workbooks.
We strongly recommend;
We strongly advise that students use a hard case to transport their instrument to and from the academy to offer the best possible protection for the instrument. The case must be clearly labelled with the student’s name. Students are responsible for ensuring their instrument is stored safely. The Academy will not be responsible for damage caused due to improper storage or unsuitable protection.
All students are required to wear the School uniform. They will not be reminded of our uniform policy and will be issued with an SLT detention if it is not adhered to at all times.
Blazers must be worn, with shirts tucked in at ALL TIMES. The School uniform should not be altered in any way, for example by adding clips, badges or stickers. The School supports charities and, at specific times of the year, may allow charity badges to be worn. Outside of these times, students should show their support for their chosen charity by attaching these items to their bags.
Any items of clothing, jewellery or hair accessories that do not adhere to the policy will be confiscated and an SLT detention will be issued. Parents may wish to collect these items at the end of the School day.
REMOVING YOUR BLAZER
Blazers may always be removed when eating in the dining hall. On very hot days, the Principal may notify students that they are allowed to remove their blazers while outside. However, it should never be assumed that this is the case without confirmation from staff. On these days, blazers must be carried and never forced into bags or tied around the waist. Blazers must always be worn on entry to and exit from the building, in corridors and when entering and leaving the School grounds at the start and the end of the day.
NB: The final decision with regard to all issues relating to uniform will be made by the Principal.
