Personal Appearance

We are always conscious of health and safety risks both to the owner and others in the wearing of jewellery. Therefore the only jewellery allowed is a wrist watch.

Piercings, facial or bodily, are not allowed due to Health and Safety considerations.

In the Academy's programme of Personal and Social Education we ask pupils to consider their appearance and the impression it makes on others. This is particularly important when on interview or representing the Academy for instance.


Make-up, if worn at all, should be discreetly used and not be excessive. Students are not allowed to wear false/acrylic nails or have nail decoration.

Hair styles

Hair Styles should be practical, clean and suitable for a working environment. In this academy, hairstyles representing various cults e.g. punk, mohican, hair shaved in bands, stripes, initials or dyed in unnatural colours are unacceptable. Eyebrows shaved in stripes are also unacceptable.

  • Plain black or navy head scarf as appropriate, no jewellery within the head scarf
  • School bag as appropriate to carry all equipment needed for the day

Students should not bring large sums of money or any valuable items into the Academy. If there is no alternative they should hand them to a member of staff for safe keeping.
