The Principal reserves the right to decide what constitutes appropriate uniform. Unless there are exceptional, extenuating circumstances leading to students not being in correct uniform, students may be sent home to get changed. In such instances, parents will be contacted by the Academy to inform them of this. Where it is not deemed appropriate to send a student home, the student will be taught in isolation. Persistent and defiant non-compliance with the Academy’s uniform code may result in exclusions.

Please note: Blazers and school jumpers are available from Sue’s Schoolwear.

*No other jumpers/cardigans permitted.
