Additional requirements

  • Sweatshirts, non-religious headwear or over-coats are not permitted to be worn within the Academy’s building.  If seen, they will be confiscated until the end of the day.  If they are not claimed within a term, they will be donated to charity;
  • Students are not allowed to wear hoodies or caps on the Academy’s premises, if seen, they will be confiscated until the end of the day.  If they are not claimed within a term, they will be donated to charity;
  • For health and safety reasons nails should be of a suitable length.
  • Make-up if worn should be of a natural tone.


It is preferable that no jewellery is worn for safety and security reasons.  However, a wrist watch, small objects of religious significance and a small sleeper/stud in each lobe of the ear would be the maximum allowed.  No facial piercing is allowed at the Academy, we ask the students to either remove jewellery when participating in sport, or cover items with a plaster, to prevent them from causing injury.

Tattoos and hairstyles

  • Due to the legalities students under 16 must not have tattoos;
  • The Academy allows students to have some creativity with regards to hair styles.  We advise that students discuss any plans to have a new hairstyle with their college office and seek permission before they go ahead and create their look as some hairstyles are not permitted: this includes ‘tram-lines’ and a shaved head.
