School Uniform

Uniform is one of our 6 Learning Habits of Excellence and therefore uniform should comply with our clear uniform code at all times. This is because we want students at St Aidan’s Catholic Academy to be proud and to feel part of our community. The dress code applies both within school and on the journey to and from school.

Students must be dressed properly in full school uniform which consists of:

  • Blazer with School Badge
  • School Tie – Ties should be fastened up to the neck properly and reasonable length.
  • House Badge worn on left lapel.
  • Black Trousers ONLY
  • White Shirt ONLY – tucked in at all times.
  • Black V Neck St Aidan’s branded jumper (if a jumper is worn)
  • Black formal leather shoes. No boots or suede.
  • Sensible hairstyle – see below
  • Black/dark coloured outdoor coat – see below
  • Jewellery is not allowed in the Academy and will be confiscated for collection at the end of the school day by the student: wrist watches are allowed.

Every student should have a bag to carry books and equipment to and from school every day.

Please note: Polo shirts, jeans, flare/fashion trousers, trainers, plimsolls, boots and jewellery are not acceptable.
