At Ormiston Sudbury Academy the standard uniform is as follows:

  • Black trousers/tailored, pleated skirt or tailored shorts, white collared shirt, blue tie, blazer, Academy jumper (optional), plain black or white socks or plain black/neutral tights
  • Plain black school shoes (must be ‘polishable’); no canvas shoes, trainers, sandals or plimsolls
  • Sixth form students should wear smart ‘office wear’

The academy uniform should be worn by all students in year 7 through to year 11. Students who arrive at the academy in incorrect uniform may be sent home to change.

In addition to the items of clothing mentioned above:

  • Students should not wear coats/jackets, scarves, hats or gloves once in the Academy
  • Students may wear one pair of stud earrings
  • Facial piercings are not permitted
  • Make up must be minimal
  • Nail polish must be of a single colour
  • Acrylic nails are not permitted
  • Hair should be natural colours only; students should not dye their hair in any bright or unnatural colours and anyone who does will be expected to re-dye it to an acceptable colour.

We understand that buying the appropriate uniform can be a challenge when faced with so many different uniform styles, changing fashions and teenage preferences! This can cause a number of issues as some students are keen to wear very short tight skirts and extremely tight, skinny, or jean-style trousers. These styles do not comply with the uniform guidelines and much staff time can be lost dealing with uniform related issues.

To make the process simpler for parents and carers, we have a ‘standard’ uniform; Needlepoint who already supply our blazers and ties, are also able to supply trousers and skirts. We expect all of our students to be wearing items of uniform which are of similar style/design/fit to those items available from Needlepoint.
