Uniform and equipment

Information about the academy uniform can be found here

From September 2021 we will be returning to our previous routine with regards to PE and Dance lessons – where students bring their kit to school with them and get changed at the start and end of the lesson.  All students should be coming to school in full uniform, every day, from September.  We also encourage students to continue to bring a coat as breaks will continue to be outside. 

We are aware of a delay with regards to PE kit from our supplier. For details regarding the PE kit and academy bags, see our latest news article here.

In terms of equipment, students should always have with them a pen, pencil, ruler, scientific calculator (Casio models preferred), protractor, mini-whiteboard with pen and knowledge organiser.  All of this equipment can be purchased at Student Services.  All students will be provided with a new knowledge organiser, mini-whiteboard and pen, free of charge, on the first day of the new term.  They will be expected to replace these themselves if they are lost or damaged. Students should carry all of their equipment in an official academy bag (rucksack or messenger bag), available to purchase from the academy reception.

We are pleased to be able to share the news that break time brunch snacks will be on sale again from September for students who wish to purchase them.  In addition, our lunchtime food offer will return to a full offer, including a selection of hot meals, salad bar, sandwich station, and takeaway station (pizza, jacket potatoes and more)
