Uniform

Students are expected to wear Academy uniform.  It provides a suitable standard of dress, it reflects a sense of belonging to the Academy community and it does help to remove some of the obvious differences in wealth.  We hope you and your child will be proud to display the fact that he/she is a student of Burnt Mill Academy.

Burnt Mill Academy uniform is available from Top Form.

Footnote:
Parents may sometimes be persuaded to buy fashion garments and shoes which then find their way into the Academy as uniform items wear out.  We ask you to bear in mind that the uniform requirements set out above are long-term.

Technology:
Aprons will be provided by the Academy in the Food Technology Department but it is essential that an overall or bib-type apron is worn in the workshop.  This need not be new.
