Dress Code

Our students are expected to wear their uniform with pride. 

The uniform is: 

  • smart 
  • unique
  • practical
  • machine washable

It has a number of different options to meet the cultural and religious needs of the community we serve. We are currently able to subsidise the uniform for new students offering financial support for families whose income is below a certain level.

Please note amendments to our uniform policy:

  • Students who choose to wear the Academy skirt must ensure their skirt is no shorter than knee-length. When you buy the skirt from Speedstitch, please ensure you purchase the correct length for your child as well as the correct waist size.
  • Our previous uniform policy stated that coats and bags must be black, but we have amended this to dark coloured coats and bags based on feedback from students, parents and teachers.
