At Alcester Academy we are proud of our standards of school uniform that are the result of a high degree of co-operation between parents/carers, students and the school.

We are firm believers in a school uniform that is properly and consistently worn. We believe that this helps young people to develop a real pride in themselves and their school and to look smart helps them to think smart too. Uniform helps students to feel part of our community, and makes the point that there is no discrimination. It sets a standard which supports our expectations of work and behaviour. We find it helps maintain the right environment for learning.

All students wear their uniform both in school and when representing the school at events or on visits. When the students are travelling to and from school in the community we expect that the same high uniform expectations are met with the students wearing the uniform with pride and role modelling our beliefs. Outdoor coats may be worn over, but not instead of, blazers which are compulsory. In this respect we expect no less from our students than an employer would expect of their employees.

We recommend that name tapes should be put into all garments.
For parents/carers in need of financial support with uniform, please refer to the Hardship Policy.
If students attend school dressed inappropriately, we reserve the right to place students in isolation until the issue has been rectified and our expectations have been met.

Girls Skirts

Alcester Academy has a standard academy skirt. It is a mid-grey with drop pleats and a school badge.

The ruling is that the skirts should be no shorter than half way between the top of the leg and the knee. If girls have skirts that are considered inappropriate, then we will expect them to purchase a new standard academy skirt or wear acceptable trousers.
