IMPORTANT NOTICES

JEWELLERY

Students are NOT allowed to wear jewellery. Rings are dangerous for many activities and therefore unsuitable for the Academy.  Necklaces and bracelets are similarly unsuitable; however, an exception may be made for religious chains provided they are worn under the shirt. One pair of small stud earrings may be worn, one in each lobe.  No facial jewellery, piercings etc are permitted. Watches may be worn and handed to a teacher during certain activities such as P.E. The Academy is not responsible for the loss of any jewellery. NO unusual hairstyles, including tram lines, are permitted.

MAKE-UP

Make-up, such as lipstick, mascara and nail varnish is not suitable for the Academy, as students should not be distracted by concerns about their appearance. No lower Academy student (Year 7 & 8) may wear make-up.  In the upper Academy the rule for make-up is that it should be natural. Students who arrive wearing excessively visible make-up or any nail varnish will be required to remove it.

HAIR

Extreme hair colours are not permitted. Hair must be a natural colour.

The Academy has the final decision on uniform.
