Uniform

Impressions do count. We help our students to develop a keen sense of belonging, self-respect and an understanding of the impression they make by the way they behave and dress. We are therefore committed to a strict uniform policy.

The uniform design takes into account durability, cost and identity. It gives students an opportunity to develop feelings of pride, which we hope will stay with them throughout their days at the academy and beyond.

All students at The Ockendon Academy are expected to wear the Academy uniform with pride and look clean and smart at all times. Every student should wear the full Academy uniform when going to and from the Academy, on Academy visits and when travelling as a member of a Academy team or organisation. If for any reason a student has to come to the Academy without full uniform, a note should be brought in from their parents.

To place an order for items, please contact the Finance Department. Students can either go to finance during breaks and before / after academy hours to purchase directly. Alternatively, parents can call 01708 851661 and speak to Finance to arrange an appointment.
