Havant Academy Uniform
At Havant Academy we rigorously enforce our strict uniform policy. We believe that wearing our distinctive uniform gives our students a sense of ‘belonging’, helps foster pride in the Academy and stops students coming to school in inappropriate clothing or footwear.
Our students are our ambassadors in the community. We therefore expect students to wear full Academy uniform when travelling to and from the school, at all Academy functions, on extra-curricular visits and when taking part in representative sport.
Main School Uniform
The Uniform for Years 7 – 11 comprises of:
Black trousers or Havant Academy skirt.
Academy blazer, with the Academy logo should be worn at all times (in the event of hot weather, students will be given permission to remove their blazer by the Headteacher).
A Havant Academy logo (purchased from Skoolkit) can be sewn onto a plain black blazer.
Black or grey socks with black trousers. Neutral or black tights with skirts.
Black shoes with a flat sole and a heel of no more than 2cm in height.
A white school shirt must be worn tucked in and this must not be tightly fitted.
An Academy clip on tie. Years 7 - 9 plain purple and Years 10 & 11 purple and grey striped.
Leggings and jeans are not acceptable items of clothing for school.
Black V-neck jumpers (no logos) can be worn under the blazer in colder weather, but not as a substitute for the blazer.
Black formal style shoes - trainers are not an acceptable item of footwear.
Discreet make-up is permitted in KS4, no make-up in KS3. False eyelashes and nose studs are not permitted in school.
Hair should be a natural colour and students should only wear a single set of earrings.
Nail varnish and acrylic nails are not allowed.
Coats must not be worn in the Academy building. We would recommend a waterproof one for travel to and from school.
Hoodies are not an acceptable item of clothing to be worn at school and are not considered an alternative to a coat.
Hair and Accessories
Information for Hair and Accessories rules:
To aid in the creation of a professional learning environment we insist students only wear one pair of small gold or silver stud ear rings in the lobes of their ears. The studs should not be shaped or have coloured or diamante inserts. In addition, earrings, rings, nose studs and other facial jewellery are not acceptable. Tattoos are not allowed and existing tattoos must be covered. Finally, nail varnish and acrylic nails are not allowed.
Hair styles should not be excessive and have a natural colour/tone. Students with long hair must have it tied back with a dark coloured hair bobble whilst participating in all practical lessons for safety reasons. Extreme ‘cuts’ of any shape or design are not acceptable.
