Shoes

 

Unfortunately, shoe retailers’ opinions and marketing about what is an acceptable school shoe differs from the opinions of many schools and academies. In particular, many shoes sold by retailers as ‘suitable for school’ are really, in our opinion, trainers.

 

Uniform is very important to the academy and its students and parents or carers should ask if in any doubt as to what is acceptable.

 

The procedures and standards for shoes are in line with our standards and procedures for uniform. Please see above for procedures in the event of a student wearing uniform incompatible with our policy.

Shoe policy in summary

 

·         No SPORTS branded footwear

·         No boots above the ankle

·         Shoes must be black

·         No gold, metallic trimmings.
