Uniform

The Academy prides itself on the behaviour and attitude to learning of all students. The correct wearing of the Academy uniform is central to this. By wearing our uniform, students visibly belong to the South Axholme community. By adhering to the dress code, students arrive at school ready to work, and staff are able to concentrate on the core business of teaching and learning.

The School Uniform is available from Sportswear International Ltd, although blazers, trousers and shirts may be purchased from other sources as long as they adhere to the Academy's School Uniform Policy.

Ties may be purchased directly from South Axholme Academy along with the school badge for sewing onto plain blazers.

Uniform Letter & Details

All Students

  • All clothing should be free from badges and motifs unless approved by the academy
  • Jewellery/piercings of any type should not be worn apart from a wrist watch
  • Make-up, including nail varnish should not be worn - acrylic nails may only be worn if they are natural and a short length
  • Denim jackets and leather jackets should not be worn
  • Certain extreme hairstyles and colours are not suitable for school including non-natural dyed hair, Mohican and pattern/stripe shaving
  • Mobile phones are not banned from school as we accept that some students and parents see the possession of mobile phones as an aid to safety and security. However, if a student does bring a mobile phone into school, it must be switched off during the day, kept out of sight and not used for any reason on school premises, or on school trips or sports fixtures organised off the premises, unless the student has the express permission of a member of staff and uses it under their supervision. The school will not accept liability for the theft, damage or loss of a mobile phone and the student has to accept full responsibility for it at all times. If a student is seen with their mobile phone (not necessarily using it) the phone will be confiscated until the end of the school day. If a student repeatedly commits this breach of code, further sanctions will be put in place appropriate to the level of the breach.
