Uniform is a great way of showing that we are all in this together and proud of our Academy identity. We encourage students to take pride in themselves and their appearance at all times. Our uniform prepares students for the world of work; is practical and smart and helps our students develop a sense of belonging in our academy community.
All students are asked to wear:
- Academy embroidered jumper (optional)
- Blazer with academy badge
- Academy year-coloured tie
- Black Trousers/Skirt: Plain with skirt of an appropriate length. Pleated skirt of knee length
- White shirt with top-button
- Flat black shoes
- Socks: Plain black or white socks or black tights
For PE lessons, all students are asked to wear:
- Academy white polo shirt
- Academy shorts
- Academy black hoody or reversible rugby top
- Plain black tracksuit bottoms and plain black gym leggings
- Academy Black/Green socks (optional)
- Academy base layer (optional)
May 2021 – We have updated our guidance on what tracksuit bottoms/leggings are and aren’t appropriate for students to wear for PE. You can find this by clicking the link below. Combat trouser-style joggers with thigh pockets are not acceptable to wear for PE.

May 2021 – Update from Whittakers about purchasing uniforms
Due to Covid last year, our shop was strictly appointment only. This year we are not running appointments, families will either be able to turn up at the shop whenever they wish to receive a personal shopping experience, or they may purchase through our website www.whittakersschoolwear.co.uk .
Jewellery and Hairstyles
Students can wear discreet natural make-up. Bright colours are not allowed and we may ask students to remove make up we think is excessive.
Jewellery is limited to a single pair of plain gold or silver stud earrings only. Studs should not have a stone in them. Anything other than plain gold or silver studs will be confiscated if seen.
Hair should be worn in a simple, neat style of natural colour (no unnatural colours e.g. blue, green, yellow etc). Students should not have hair or eyebrow shavings or inappropriate headwear.
Other essential equipment
All students will need
- pencil case;
- suitable bag with the capacity to hold A4 books.
