SUMMER UNIFORM

At times of extreme heat students will be informed by the Head teacher when ties and blazers may be taken off in the Academy. However, they must normally be worn on journeys to and from school and on school trips.

JEWELLERY

Students may wear a watch but no other jewellery is permitted due to health and safety issues and liability in case of loss. Therefore, if students wish to have any part of their body pierced they must arrange this at the beginning of the Summer holidays so that the wound has sufficient time to heal. Plasters may not be worn to cover body jewellery. If pupils disregard this they will be isolated from other pupils until they comply with the regulation. (Religious necklaces and jewellery may be worn under clothing.)

HAIRSTYLES AND ATTIRE

Baseball caps are not permitted in any circumstances, including journeys to and from the Academy.

Hairstyles should not be extreme. Parents should consult, in advance, with the Head of Year if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style. The Academy shall be the arbiter of the term 'extreme'.

MAKE-UP
