Bishop Creighton Academy

Uniform

The Bishop Creighton Academy has strict guidelines on school dress and all primary and pupils are expected to wear the full Academy uniform.

The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging’, helps foster pride in the Academy and stops pupils coming to school in inappropriate clothing or footwear. There are also basic uniform requirements which must always be adhered to.

These basic requirements are:

  • Shoes must be black, sensible ones for Academy use, flat soled or with very low heels no more than two centimetres high. No boots or trainers are allowed
  • We will not allow tattoos, make-up, jewellery, nail varnish, dyed hair or hair extensions
  • Excessive hair styles are strongly discouraged and decisions about the suitability of an individual style are the responsibility of the Principal, whose decision will be final. ‘Cuts’ of any shape or design are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours. Any pupil with long hair must have it tied back at all times whilst at the Academy
  • Jewellery is not allowed but pupils may wear one pair of plain earring studs and all modest hair accessories should be in the Academy colours
  • Jewellery is not allowed, except for one pair of plain gold or gold coloured ear studs worn in the earlobe. Ear-rings, rings, nose studs or other facial jewellery, nail varnish and make-up are not allowed
