Uniform and PE Kit

Our current supplier is Anglia School and Sports Wear and orders for both blazers/ties/jumpers and PE kit may be placed through their website here

The blazer and tie, along with the PE kit items, are the only ‘compulsory’ items; other items which meet our expected standards are also available to purchase but, provided they are of similar style (and meet expectations – see image below), these items may be purchased elsewhere, if desired.  (See here for more information on PE kit)

ACADEMY UNIFORM
(Please refer to our ‘Behaviour for Learning Policy‘ (PAGE 10) as well as in the ‘Student Planner‘ which is issued to all students.)

At Ormiston Sudbury Academy the standard uniform is as follows:

  • Black trousers/tailored, pleated knee-length skirt or tailored shorts, white collared shirt/blouse, 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.

HAIR COLOUR, JEWELLERY/PIERCINGS AND ACCESSORIES
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.

In addition to our logoed blazer and our clip-on tie students should wear either black trousers or skirts similar to those in the images below

        

 

 

 

 

 

Footwear should be……

Well maintained, clean black shoes or ankle boots (boots may be worn with trousers only) that have a flat heel.  There should be no excessive or obvious embellishments or branding or white soles.  Footwear may be laced, Velcro, buckle or slip-on.  Footwear material should be leather, suede or synthetic leather; no canvas or traditional “trainer” fabric and no open-toed sandals.
