Uniform

Uniform

The 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 lobes of 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 in the Academy.

THE ACADEMY TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST OR STOLEN JEWELLERY OR ELECTRICAL ITEMS AS THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED 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 and all pupils with long hair must have it tied back with a dark coloured hair bobble whilst on the Academy site. ‘Cuts' of any shape or design are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours.

The uniform for Years 7, 8 and 9 comprises:

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

The uniform for Years 10 and 11 comprises:

  • Plain white school shirt (not polo shirts)
  • Black 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 skirts are not suitable.

All pupils should have a warm dark coloured coat for the journey to and from the Academy and between classroom blocks. Denim coats, hoodies, body-warmer-style coats and caps are not allowed.  Equipment should be carried in a rucksack-type backpack. Handbags are not permitted.
