Uniform & Presentation

The John Wallis Church of England Academy places great importance upon the Academy uniform, which is compulsory for all Year 7 - 11 students. Students will not be permitted to attend lessons unless they are in full Academy uniform. If there is an exceptional reason why a student is not wearing the correct uniform, e.g. an accident at the last minute, the Personal Tutor will require a note from the parent.

  • The Academy uniform provides the students with a sense of school identity and ensures that standards of dress and presentation are maintained and are not subject to fashionable variation.
  • Trainers and plimsolls may only be worn for games lesson.
  • No jewellery is allowed except for a small pair of plain studs in pierced ears. The Academy cannot accept responsibility for the loss of such items or any injury caused by them.
  • Girls are not permitted to wear make-up or nail varnish and they must have long hair tied back. A narrow, plain, dark headband is permitted.
  • The Academy uniform and rules about personal presentation are clearly explained in the students' Planner. All parents sign up to these rules in the Home-School Agreement.
  • All clothing must be clearly marked with the student's name. PE and games kit should have the initials embroidered OR a name tape sewn so as to be clearly visible, on the inside of each garment.
  • The Finance Office deals with all uniform orders and enquiries.
  • Girls are permitted to wear trousers which must be tailored, of smart appearance and of non-rib material or combat design. No fashion trousers will be accepted as school wear.
  • Students must not bring expensive articles of clothing or equipment to school unless with the prior approval of the House Leader.
  • The school will not accept responsibility for loss or damage to students' private property. No clothing must be left in the Academy overnight.
