Student Uniform Guidance OIEA

Trutex Direct Catalogue 2018

All of our students wear uniform which reflects a sense of belonging to the Academy Community.
Our aim is to encourage the highest standards in all that we do as an Academy and part of that is that our uniform reflects these standards.

Our uniform is compulsory for all students and is made up of the following items:

  • Academy blazer with logo
  • Black v-neck jumper with logo (no cardigans). Students can wear a black v-neck jumper with logo available from uniform stockists.
  • Academy tie
  • Black full length tailored trousers/skirt (of an appropriate length and style, no Lycra)
  • White shirt (tucked in)
  • Plain black shoes (no boots or sandals)

The academy blazer must be worn at all times on and around the site, unless permission is given by a member of staff to take it off.  Jumpers are optional.

Final decisions regarding the suitability of uniform will be made by the Principal/Assistant Principals.
