Uniform and Equipment

Greensward Academy's uniform is available to purchase from Danielle's shops in Hockley and Rayleigh. All uniform items should be purchased or ordered through Danielle's. Online ordering is available through their website: www.daniellesshop.co.uk.

We believe good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and identify students to local residents and future employers as members of an efficient organisation. The co-operation of all parents/carers is requested to ensure that students are in correct uniform to and from the academy as well as during normal school hours.

Please note that Greensward Academy makes the final decision as to what is or is not acceptable in all aspects of a student’s appearance. All items must be purchased from our uniform supplier Danielle’s in Hockley and Rayleigh with the exception of those items in italics.

Students are allowed to wear a watch, one pair of small stud earrings (i.e. one in each ear lobe only) and a medic alert chain if necessary. No other jewellery should be worn. No body piercing is allowed, including tongue, eyebrow and nose and in any part of the ear other than in the lobe.


Hairstyle is an important aspect of the image central to the individual and the image the individual creates for Greensward Academy. No extreme hairstyles i.e. not less than a grade 2 in length or brightly coloured or two-tone hair. Any hair bands, clips, etc should be plain navy, white or black.


The rules are very clear. There is to be no make-up worn by any students in Years 7-9 inclusive. Minimal or very discreet make-up is permitted in Years 10 and 11. This, however, does not include the wearing of fake tan, false eyelashes, tinted or coloured eyebrows, false nails or nail varnish.

If any student is deemed to be wearing make-up they will be asked to remove it. Persistent offenders will risk further sanctions.
