School Uniform

Dress for school

Hazlehead Academy encourages the wearing of school uniform by all pupils. Uniform creates a feeling of belonging and provides pupils with an opportunity to identify with Hazlehead Academy. It is smart and economical and creates a purposeful image.

The traditional Hazlehead Academy school colours are green and navy/black.

PE Kit

S1-S6 pupils

Kukri sports top, navy or black shorts, tracksuit trousers, leggings, change of trainers (non-marking soles)


Every pupil should always have a complete change of appropriate kit for every PE lesson. If your child is fit enough to attend school but is suffering from a short term injury/ailment, he/she will still be required to bring PE kit and parents will be expected to provide a note of explanation. The pupil should change as normal and then hand the note of explanation to their teacher.

Long term non-participation in PE, ie longer than two weeks, will require medical confirmation with a note from home. Valuables should be handed into PE staff each lesson to ensure safe keeping.

N.B. All jewellery must be removed prior to participating in PE.
