Our blazer, jumper, and PE kit (academy tracksuit, shorts and t-shirt) are available only from Whitehall Clothiers, 77 Camberwell Road, London SE5 0EZ (0207 703 3604). All other items of the Academy uniform can be purchased from any supplier.

Electronic equipment

In order to prevent distractions and disruption, the Academy operates a “Zero tolerance” policy for all electronic equipment e.g. I-Pods, MP3 players.  These items should not be brought into the Academy at all, and, if seen, will be confiscated.  Mobile phones are only for emergency use on the way to the Academy or on the way home, not for entertainment purposes.  We allow students to have them only for this reason.  They should be placed inside bags on entry to the Academy and remain there for the rest of the day.  If they are seen out during the day, they will be confiscated.  For security purposes, students are able to take their phone to reception first thing in the morning before lessons start and hand it in should they choose.  It will be labeled and stored in a locked cabinet and available for collection at 3:10pm.
