Academy Uniform

Our Academy rules state that pupils must aim to create a good impression of themselves and the Academy in their dress and personal appearance.  This means wearing Academy uniform and aiming to look smart and presentable at all times.

As many of you may already know, we have introduced a Brownhills Ormiston Academy summer
polo shirt which can be worn from Monday 3 June until the end of the summer term
(July). It is not compulsory to wear the polo shirt and students may still continue to
wear a white shirt and school tie. However, if students wish to wear the polo shirt they
are available from the following uniform stockists and prices start from £8.99.

The polo shirt replaces the shirt and tie. It can be worn with or without the Academy
blazer and jumper. It does not need to be tucked into trousers. Please see images
