Before we start the summer break, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the Academy and to issue a reminder of the uniform standards expected for students prior to their return in September. Please take time to read this letter before purchasing any new items.

Academy Uniform Code

Students Uniform (all items are compulsory):

  • Formal plain black shoes
  • White shirt/blouse tucked in and top button fastened
  • Wingfield Jumper/Cardigan with logo
  • Academy tie
  • Plain black tailored trousers or knee length skirt worn with black tights
  • Black socks/tights
  • Bag that is large enough to take an A4 folder/book

The list below contains examples of attire that go against the Academy uniform code and must not be worn. This list is not exhaustive:

  • Training shoes, sandals, flip flops, canvas, plimsolls, high heeled shoes or boots.
  • Shoe laces other than black.
  • Jewellery – with the exception of one pair of small stud earrings, signet ring and a watch
  • Denim/leather garments or extremes of fashion
  • Hoods or any hats inside the Academy building or outside space
  • Coats and outdoor clothing in the Academy building
  • Jumpers/Cardigan other than Wingfield
  • Large decorative belts/coloured belts other than black
  • Brightly coloured dyed hair
  • Body, facial or tongue piercings including retainers
  • Patterns shaved into hair or other extreme hairstyles (e.g. shaved shorter than number 2)

Y7 and Y8 students are not permitted to wear make-up, for students in Y9, Y10 and Y11 make-up must be minimal and discreet (looking entirely natural). Eye shadow, false lashes, eye liner, heavy mascara and brightly coloured lip stick would not be acceptable for any student. Excessive make-up and orange or brown foundation make-up will have to be removed. False nails, such as acrylic or gel, and any coloured nail varnish are not regarded as acceptable.

As a parent you are encouraged to contact the Academy before buying or sending your son/daughter to the Academy in or with anything you feel may be deemed unacceptable. Students in breach of the uniform code will have items confiscated and placed in the Academy safe. Students will be able to collect the items at the end of the week from the Academy’s reception from 2.45pm. Where items of non-Academy uniform cannot be removed or confiscated, parents will be contacted and students may be placed in the Consequence Room until the issue is resolved.

I would like to wish you a restful and safe summer holiday and look forward to welcoming students back to the Academy on Tuesday 4th September 2017 at 8:25am.

Yours sincerely
