Home » Our Academy » Uniform


Students and parents are responsible for making sure that they know the required standards for uniform and that these standards are met not only in the Academy, but anytime it is worn, particularly to and from the Academy.

Items not permitted within the uniform will be temporarily confiscated; they will be returned once parental confirmation of ownership is obtained and at a time that remains at the discretion of the Academy.

The uniform is consistent with the ethos of the Academy and the Academy states clearly what it considers appropriate dress and presentation. If the Academy considers an aspect of a student’s dress or appearance to be inappropriate, it reserves the right to require correction of this by student and parent/carer. The decision of the Principal on any uniform matter is final.

Broadoak Academy is proud to champion The Halo Code and the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. Please read the full Halo Code here:

The Halo Code

P.E. Kit Requirements

  • The official purple sports polo shirt
  • Black shorts
  • The official purple/black football/hockey socks (outdoor)
  • White sports socks (indoors)
  • Trainers
  • Football boots
  • Shin pads
  • A towel

Optional for games use only:

  • Black sports sweatshirt
  • Tracksuit bottoms (black)
  • The official purple/black rugby and hockey jersey – (for winter/cold weather)

P.E. kit is essential for every lesson. If a pupil is unable to take part in the lesson because of a medical reason, they still need to bring in their P.E. kit and change. They can then help their teacher to coach, referee or umpire. They may be outside in wet conditions. They will then be able to change out of a wet P.E. kit into a dry uniform for the rest of the day’s lessons. No jewellery.

Please Note

1. All items of clothing/equipment must be clearly marked with the student’s name.

2. No excesses of fashion are permitted.

3. Garments / items not listed above will be confiscated.

4. Students not adhering to the uniform rules may be withdrawn from mainstream lessons until they do.

Students should take a pride in their standard of uniform and in their college. They represent the Academy through their appearance at all times both on the premises and on the journey between home and the Academy.

If students are having piercings done during a holiday period, they should leave enough time to be able to remove them on their return to school – the same applies to any hairstyles that do not comply with the above code.

The Academy is often complimented on the smart appearance of our students and I appreciate the support I get from parents on this matter.  Parents / carers should contact the college if they are having difficulties with any of these rules.

The Principals decision on all matters of uniform is final.
All items should be marked with the child’s name.
