Stanground Academy

Uniform

Stanground Academy has strict guidelines on uniform and all secondary pupils are expected to wear the full Academy uniform.

The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging', helps foster pride in the Academy and stops pupils coming to school in inappropriate clothing or footwear.

Sixth Form students do not have a uniform but are expected to follow the dress code of 'office wear'.

Pupils are expected to wear Academy uniform when travelling to and from the Academy, at all Academy functions and on visits by parties or sports teams.

Jewellery is not allowed, except for one pair of small, plain, gold or silver studs worn in the ear. Ear-rings, rings, nose studs or other facial jewellery, nail varnish and make up are not allowed. Retainers of any kind are not permitted.

Electrical items, such as mobile phones are also not allowed to been seen on the Academy site.

THE ACADEMY TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST OR STOLEN JEWELLERY OR ELECTRICAL ITEMS BROUGHT INTO OR ON THE ACADEMY SITE.

Shoes must be black, leather or leather-style sensible ones for Academy use that can be polished, flat soled or with very low heel. No boots or trainers or trainer type shoes, such as 'Vans' are allowed. 

Excessive hair styles are not allowed. ‘Cuts' of any shape or design are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours.

The uniform for Years 7 and 8 comprises:

  • Plain white school shirt (not polo shirts)
  • Black full length trousers or skirt (jeans, cords, ‘hipster' and tight-fitting trousers or skirts are not allowed, skirts are to be no shorter than knee length and not fitted). 'Skater'-style, floaty or flared skirts are not suitable. Trousers and skirts should be modest.

  • Plain white school shirt (not polo shirts)
  • Black full length trousers or skirt (jeans, cords, ‘hipster' and tight fitting trousers are not allowed, skirts to be no shorter than knee length and not fitted) - as a rule of thumb, trousers and skirts should be modest. 'Skater'-style, floaty or flared skirts are not suitable.

All pupils should have a warm dark coloured coat for the journey to and from the Academy, nothing, other than school uniform, is to be worn in the building (ie no other jumpers/ tops are allowed in place of the official school jumper). Denim coats, hoodies, body-warmer-style coats and caps are not allowed.
