Outside Coats

  • Outside coats need not be bottle green but we would encourage the purchase of sensible coats.
  • Students must not wear casual outer garments at the Academy, e.g. hooded sweatshirts, sweatshirts, tracksuit tops.
  • Denim or material of similar appearance must not be worn at the Academy.

If students do not wear the appropriate uniform, and no satisfactory reason (supported by a parental note on the day) is given, they will experience withdrawal of privileges and other sanctions may be applied. A medical note will be requested in the case of alternative footwear.

All items of clothing should be named.


Our first consideration is the safety of our students and, therefore, jewellery is discouraged. The wearing of certain jewellery can be dangerous e.g. heavy chains/medallions/leather necklaces. Jewellery of any type must not be worn in P.E.

  • The Academy reserves the right to request students to remove jewellery which we believe could cause injury to themselves or others.
  • Earrings – students may wear either ONE or a pair of small solid studs. ‘Hooped’ earrings of ANY description are NOT allowed. If a chain is worn around the neck, it should be out of sight, under the shirt/blouse.

We strongly advise that ear piercing be done at the beginning of the summer holidays.

  • Rings – one plain ring is allowed.
  • Nose studs are not acceptable neither is any other form of body piercing.

We encourage students not to bring items of value to college for obvious reasons and jewellery often falls into this category.

Make-up and Nail Varnish – The wearing of make-up and nail varnish is not encouraged. Any students wearing excessive amounts of either will be asked to remove it.

Hairstyles – We reserve the right to make judgements about relevant hairstyles and hair colour.

Disclaimer – The Academy reserves the right to make the final judgement on any of the above.
