Petchey Academy 036

Our Uniform

Please note the last order date for guaranteed delivery before the start of the new school year is Sunday 2nd August

Students who are joining the academy in year 7 in September 2020 do not need to purchase a tie - new year 7 ties will be available to purchase at the start of term.

First impressions count!

We are extremely proud of our distinctive Petchey uniform, and we expect students to take pride in their appearance by wearing the correct uniform at all times, including on the way to and from the academy.

Our smart school uniform helps students to develop a sense of belonging, self respect and an understanding of the impression they make by the way they behave and dress.

All uniform including PE Kit is available to buy online via the link below.

Uniform ordered online can either be delivered to the academy for free, or to your home address for a small delivery fee. Deliveries to the academy are every two weeks. You will receive a text message when your order arrives so that your child can collect it from Student Reception.

Students are expected to look smart both on their way to and from school as well as in school.

  • Hair should be a natural colour and hairbands/clips must be plain black to tie back hair but not cover it.
  • One plain gold or silver stud in each lobe. No other studs permitted.
  • Eyebrows should have no shavings, markings or highlighting.
  • No false eyelashes.
  • No false nails or nail varnish - even natural colours
  • Shoes must be plain black with no trimmings or embellishments and not patent leather.
  • Blazers must be worn at all times around the academy; however, teachers may give permission for students to
    take them off in a classroom.
  • Blazers may be taken off when outside on the patio at break time, but should be worn on the journey to and from the academy.
  • Blazer sleeves should never be pushed or rolled up.

The academy and its staff are not liable for any loss of, or damage to, any item they have confiscated in accordance with our policies and procedures.
