Uniform Guide

Outdoor Clothing
An outdoor coat may be worn to the Academy. Hooded tops, tracksuit tops and baseball caps must not be worn on the Academy premises. All students are expected to bring a bag to the Academy every day.

Shoes

All students should wear traditional black shoes ie shoes without markings or flashings. Vans and Ugg boots are not allowed, but Kicker shoes are acceptable. Please be aware that students who present with inappropriate footwear will be expected to change into Academy shoes or pumps as a sanction and as a reminder of our expectations as per the Academy Behaviour Policy.

Jewellery

Students can wear a watch but no other jewellery is allowed for Health and Safety reasons. This means earrings, bracelets and necklaces are not permitted, and from September 2011 it will not be acceptable to cover any of these items with a plaster or bandage. We expect students to work with us to comply with our high standards. The exception to this rule is that Year 10 and Year 11 only are permitted to wear a pair of simple stud earrings (one stud in each ear) as a privilege. If this is abused then the privilege will be withdrawn. No hoops or spikes are allowed.

Hair

We expect all students to keep appropriate and professional hairstyles. No extreme hairstyle is allowed; this includes extreme cuts or styles and extreme colours; so unnatural hair colours are not acceptable and patterns or lines that may be associated with gangs or other tribal markings are also forbidden. A simple hair band in Academy colours (black, blue, purple or white) is allowed but hair fascinators such as flowers, bows or other embellishments are not part of the uniform and should not be worn. Please understand that we are not deliberately seeking to stifle creativity or expressions of individuality and do not believe our uniform policy does this; instead we want to encourage and foster a smart, positive and professional learning environment for all and help students to prepare themselves for future employment where they will have to observe and comply with strict dress codes.

Make-Up and Nails

To maintain a professional learning environment all students should remember that they attend school to learn and fulfil their academic potential. As such, make-up and face tan are not appropriate during school business hours and should not be worn. Coloured nail varnish and false nails should not be worn. Plain, clear, short, false nails are permitted.

General

All students are expected to wear full uniform at all times. This includes the blazer. Students wearing a tie should ensure that it is worn and tied correctly, of an appropriate length and that it covers a buttoned up top button. All students must ensure that their shirt is tucked in fully at all times. Socks should be black or white only. A grey or black v-neck jumper is the only addition to the uniform. No cardigans or hooded tops should be worn at any time inside the Academy building.
