Changes to Uniform Policy – September 2022

Changes to our academy’s uniform policy, which will take effect from September 2022. These changes will allow us to achieve better value for money for parents and carers.

Following the recent change in law with regard to school uniform and having listed to parent feedback, we have decided to implement the following changes to our uniform policy:

  • White shirt with home school tie – boys and girls
  • Dark grey long school trousers
  • Dark grey pleated knee-length school skirt

Please note that to secure the best value for money, we’ve considered both cost and quality of garments. This ensures items can stand the test of time and, therefore, limits the amount spent on replacing worn out items. There will be a phased rollout of this new policy. This means that we do not expect you to buy new uniform immediately. Instead, when you do need uniform, you should buy items that comply with the updated policy. There will be no changes to how you order uniform and all items will still be available from our supplier JK Clothing.


All students in Years 7 – 11 wear Academy uniform which has  been approved by the Governing Body. This is to be worn in school and on the journeys to and from school. Students are expected to be smartly dressed at all times.  Variations to the prescribed school uniform are not permitted.  Students who wear incorrect uniforms will either be sent home to change or receive a consequence.
