We have extremely high expectations and expect our students to wear their uniform with pride and adhere to our policy at all times. This includes arriving to and leaving the academy at the start and end of the day. The list of compulsory uniform items is below. All of these can be purchased through our suppliers.
Boots are not acceptable as footwear at the academy.
Hoodies are not acceptable wear in the academy.
Lanyards and identity cards, secured in a cardholder, should always be visible and worn whilst in the academy or representing the academy at an event.
Jewellery - students are only permitted to wear a watch, one pair of small plain studs and one plain ring. Nose studs or any other form of body piercing is not allowed. The academy reserves the right to request that students remove jewellery which we believe could cause injury to the students or others.
Plain black base layer can be worn under the PE Kit when outside in cold conditions. Students are permitted to wear plain black leggings under their skort/shorts. Black tracksuits bottoms, with the DFA logo are permitted in lessons.
