We are particularly proud of the appearance of our students.

Our philosophy is that an emphasis on smart appearance feeds in to good behaviour and good behaviour underpins effective learning. Our spirit of constructive, positive competition is reflected in our uniform. In addition to black blazer, trousers or skirt our students’ ties indicate the Academy House they belong to.

Uniform sets a high standard of appearance, creates easy distinction and saves parents from the cost of indulging fashion-conscious sons and daughters.  Indeed, extremes of fashion are not suitable for, and are often unsafe, in school.

All students must wear full Academy uniform properly on the way to and on the way home from the Academy.
