Ormiston Academy

Respect, Inspire, Achieve


We know that parents fully support our efforts to maintain our uniform policy. Outer coats should not be worn in the building, and students are expected to keep these in their lockers.

Jewellery and make-up

Students are permitted to wear single stud earrings and/or a wristwatch. However, body and/or facial piercings are not allowed. No items of jewellery can be worn during PE lessons. The academy cannot accept responsibility for valuable, personal items, including jewellery, brought into the academy.

Girls are asked not to wear make-up which might be considered inappropriate, in the academy. We also ask that hairstyles for both boys and girls are sensible and that hair is not coloured or styled outrageously.
