All girls are expected to wear the uniform detailed below.  This uniform will be checked on a daily basis at the gate. Parents will be informed if the uniform code is breached and students are not permitted into lesson until they are correctly dressed in full academy uniform.

Students wearing outer coats, cardigans or hoodies not conforming to academy policy will be expected to remove these at the gate and leave them in a safe area until the end of the day, when they will be able to collect them for their home journey. This includes coats which are not black.

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.

Some families may wish their daughters to wear amended uniform for reasons of religious conviction.  In these cases, a student may wear a shalwar kameez with appropriate academy trousers and with the academy blazer also worn.  Alternatively, a student may wear an abaya (hoodless only) which should be one piece and have the full academy uniform worn with it (academy trousers/skirt underneath and academy jumper and blazer also worn).  Should these options be taken, they should be plain black.  No other variations on academy uniform will be permitted.
