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.
Regardless of the recent change of uniform supplier, the Academy’s standards and expectations remain as before and can be summarised as follows:
At Ormiston Sudbury Academy the standard uniform is as follows:
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:
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.
