Uniform and Equipment Policy

By dressing in a business like manner and being fully equipped, we feel that we are giving our students the best chance of meeting expectations in the real world.

Please find the uniform list and expectations click here

If your child attends school in incorrect uniform, the Academy should be contacted in advance or a note sent with your child to explain the reasons. The expectation will be that students will then be given correct uniform items from our uniform store for the day. Any student that does not attend the Academy in correct footwear will be expected to wear the pumps that the Academy will provide for that day.
