Uniform Expectations

Academy uniform develops a sense of loyalty to the community which students are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance. Students are expected to wear full Academy uniform on the way to and from the Academy. Students are permitted to wear a plain dark coloured coat and dark colour hat.
