Uniform

Essential items of uniform, such as purple blazer, jumpers and PE shirts are available from WearAbouts Schoolwear, 99 Sydenham Road, London SE26 5UA. Telephone: 020 8659 9917.

Click HERE to visit the WearAbouts Schoolwear website.

Students are expected to wear the Academy blazer and be of smart and sensible appearance at all times. Individual fashion statements such as extreme hair styles or colours, designer shirts, trainers and decorated footwear are not permitted.

No decorative attachments are to be worn in the hair. Hair bands must be plain black or white. Tram-lines, mohicans or other shaved shapes in the hair and shaved lines in eyebrows are not permitted. Make-up and nail varnish or nail extensions must not be worn at any time. Tinted or cosmetic contact lenses and decorative dental wear are not permitted nor are bandanas, hoods, caps or hats.

By requiring students to wear the Academy uniform, it is intended to develop their sense of loyalty to the community of which they are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance. Students are expected to wear full Academy uniform on the way to and from the Academy.

Jewellery and other forbidden items will be confiscated and only returned at the end of each half term. Post 16 students will be expected to dress formally in suits and to set an example to the younger students. (Refer Sixth Form Dress Code for full details).

Some families may wish their daughter to wear amended uniform for reason of religious conviction. In these cases, a student may wear a shalwar kameez with appropriate academy trousers and with the academy blazer also worn. Alternatively, a student may wear an abaya (hoodless only) which should be one piece and have the full academy uniform worn with it (academy trousers/skirt underneath and academy jumper and blazer also worn). Should these options be taken, they should be plain black. No other variations on academy uniform will be permitted.

If students are not in full uniform, they will not be able to attend lessons. They will work in the behaviour zone until the correct uniform is brought to them or they will be sent home to change. All items of uniform should be clearly marked or labelled, with students' name.
