We decided that a uniform wasn’t in keeping with the culture we are trying to create at Accrington Academy Sixth Form. This was decided in consultation with students.
Students are expected to attend Sixth Form in smart, casual dress. Jeans and trainers are allowed if clean and smart. Students will be sent home to change if they are deemed to be dressed inappropriately. This includes ripped jeans, provocative outfits, logos that could cause offence, extreme hairstyles, jewellery and piercing. Any student who has to be sent home will be penalised for attendance and punctuality. Coats, hats and scarves are removed when inside.
All BTEC courses have specific kit in accordance with the requirements of the subject, especially those who undertake placements in the local community. They are expected to wear full kit whilst on placement and as directed during Academy time.
