Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Uniform & Equipment

Our Student Bristol 10 framework makes clear reference to looking smart and taking pride in our appearance.  

Uniform is checked each morning on entry to the Academy and where students do not meet the required standards sanctions will be applied. To avoid confusion, here are some explicit guidelines on our uniform expectations. 

Visit the suppliers website for more information.


Year 7 to Year 11


  • Blazers are to be worn around the Academy at all times, except during PE/Dance lessons and when sitting down to eat lunch or break 

Trousers & Skirts

  • Black, standard length trousers
  • No skinny fit (i.e. not tight around the lower leg/ankles), leggings or denim trousers are permitted
  • Black skirts of an acceptable length (no shorter that 2” above the knee). Tube skirts are not permitted
