Academy Uniform

At Cliff Park Ormiston Academy we would like our students to be smartly dressed at all times. It is the responsibility of all members of the academy community, staff, students & parents/carers to work together to help ensure the policy is adhered to.

  • To encourage a sense of community and a business-like approach to daily tasks, both in and out of the academy.
  • To ensure students are seen by themselves, staff, parents/carers, visitors, and the wider community as being smartly dressed, consequently enhancing the image of the academy for the benefit of all.
  • To offer an affordable, practical and safe range of academy wear.
  • To promote inclusion.
