Appearance Expectations

All pupils are expected to follow our expectations with regard to their appearance.

  • Black Mary Astell sweatshirt
  • White Mary Astell polo shirt
  • Dark coloured trousers (i.e. jeans, sports clothing, jeggings)
  • Appropriate casual footwear (i.e. trainers)

All outdoor clothing must be removed before entering the building. Pupils are not allowed to wear any outdoor clothing while inside the academy building. Pupils have access to a cloakroom to store their outdoor clothing during the school day.

Jewellery, such as rings and necklaces, are to be removed upon entering the school site. A single pair of stud earrings are allowed.

Students who are not in uniform will not be allowed to enter the academy premises. We will offer to loan pupils the items of uniform but in the unlikely event that pupils refuse to do this they will be sent home. Before any pupil is sent home we will contact you to make you aware of the situation. Once the second instance of a pupil being sent home for not wearing academy uniform occurs, attendance will be marked as unauthorised. If you need to purchase uniform please contact school reception:
