The wearing of school uniform is compulsory whilst at and travelling to and from the Gateway Academy

Students should be tidy and well-presented i.e. shirt tucked in and ties worn appropriately. Students may wear trainers at break time and lunchtime to play games but must change into shoes for lessons. Hats are allowed outside in the summer months but are not to be worn within the building.

Research suggests students behave better when in uniform. All students are ambassadors for the Gateway Academy and their behaviour when in uniform, including when travelling to and from the Academy, reflects on the Academy. All items of clothing should have the student’s name inside. If students arrive at the Academy without the appropriate uniform they may be sent home to change.

  • 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.
