Uniform

All students are expected to wear full school uniform. Arriving at school well-presented and in uniform is seen as an indication that students are ready to work hard and achieve the high standards that we expect of them.

 

For all new students starting with us at NPA, please DO NOT purchase your uniform until you have been allocated to a house, as this will have a bearing on which colour jumber/cardigan/tie needs to be bought from Chromasport.

We understand how difficult it can be to understand uniform expectations and so we have provided below some images of the style of uniform that is acceptable at Nene Park Academy.

Sixth Form Dress Code


General

Facial piercings are discouraged. If worn at all, these must be discreet, and the school reserves the right to ask students to remove these if deemed inappropriate. Excessive ear piercings and expanders are expressly forbidden. Students will be asked to remove hats whilst indoors. Hair should not be coloured with dyes inappropriate for a smart business setting.

Please note that any clothing that hinders normal communication is not permitted.

Mr Fullard, Head of Sixth Form
