Student Uniform Code
In order to provide a clear identity and a business-like approach within the Academy, there will be STRICT dress and appearance regulations for ALL. We believe that high standards of personal appearance equate to high standards in all other matters. Appropriate action will be taken to ensure that, in the interests of all students, these standards are maintained.
Appropriate safety clothing will be provided, when required, for work in laboratories and workshops.
The Academy colours are navy and black. When attending the Academy at any time, students must adere to the Academy dress-code, unless otherwise specified.
DENIM, irrespective of colour, (including jackets to and from Academy) MUST NOT BE WORN.
TRAINING SHOES, TRACKSUITS, ETC are to be worn for SPORTING ACTIVITIES ONLY.
The expectation is that all students should be smart in their appearance, with ties worn properly, shirts fastened at the neck and tucked into the waistband of skirts/trousers. Skirts must be of knee length not rolled at the waist.
The Principal reserves the right to send students who are inappropriately dressed to isolation, or in extreme cases, request that they be sent home.
We advise that all items of clothing must be clearly marked with the student’s name.
In all matters, appearance must be reasonable. Make-up may be worn discreetly but should not be excessive. The wearing of false nails/acrylics and false eyelashes is prohibited for they are not appropriate in the school working environment and can pose a risk for students undertaking practical work in many subjects.
Hair accessories and headscarves must be navy. No other head coverings are permitted. Hair – if longer than shoulder length – should be tied back when appropriate, and hairstyles should not be extreme (no patterns or unnatural colours).
Plain black leather shoes with black soles (pumps, canvas shoes, mules, backless casual shoes, trainers, boots, ankle boots, footwear with logos, stripes, ticks, crocodiles, makers’ names, metal or fabric tags and soles of any colour other than black are not allowed).
Boots are not to be worn at the Academy
The Academy may provide appropriate footwear for students to wear if rules are breached.
