Uniform is now available from School Uniform Direct.
The uniform has been designed to reflect the high standards expected at the Academy, and is to be worn professionally and with pride at all times. We feel it is important that students learn to dress smartly and appropriately.
The wearing of uniform is strictly enforced, and parents should support us in helping create a positive and professional image and reputation for the Academy.
All our students – apart from Sixth Form, who are still expected to dress professionally – will adhere to the regulations regarding uniform outlined:
To order uniform, please visit their website:
Or your local store, which you can find here:
Clothing allowances are additionally available to help parents/carers (who live within the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham) to purchase school uniforms for their children. The clothing allowance is paid to children that are aged 11 and 14 before 1st September of the current year and is worth £79.
If you think your child is eligible for a School Clothing Grant, please complete the online application form.
Hair and Jewellery
No jewellery is to be worn except plain watches and one plain metal, discreet ear stud in each ear. We do not allow any visible piercings (including nose piercings) except ear studs. Hair must be worn in a style appropriate to a business environment (plaited or in a ponytail if long). Extreme hairstyles/colours and hair bands that undermine the ethos or discipline of the Academy will not be permitted. No make-up or nail polish is permitted except for Sixth Form. Headscarves and hijabs must be plain black or grey.
Plain black leather shoes are an essential part of the Academy uniform. These must be closed toe and not made of canvas or suede. Lace up shoes are permitted, boots are not acceptable (in particular ‘Kickers’ and ‘Timberland’ style boots). Shoes must be plain, with no branding and must not extend over the ankle bone.
