A uniform is important as it helps to define what a school stands for. A smart, well-presented uniform indicates a willingness to comply with school rules and is good preparation for learning. It also shows that our students are proud to be part of the Edgar Wood Academy, representing our Academy and exemplifying our high standards to the local community. We have worked hard to ensure that our uniform is both affordable and durable, thereby providing value for money for parents and carers.

Edgar Wood Academy is delighted with our smart uniform which comprises of the following items:

  • Branded black blazer available at a local supplier detailed below.
  • White shirt (worn tucked in, with all buttons fastened).
  • Academy tie (which must be worn up to the neck).
  • Black V neck jumper (optional)
  • Black trousers with black socks.
  • Plain knee length black pleated skirt with black tights or black socks (up to the ankle).
  • Formal black flat shoes – no branding, deep treads or trainers.


Edgar Wood Academy seeks support from parents/carers in ensuring that the skirt is knee length. Skirts should not be rolled up at the top or shortened from the purchased length at the bottom.


Hairstyles are expected to be smart and a natural colour. Patterns or lines cut into hair or eyebrows are not acceptable.

Hair must be worn in a style that does not impair vision and allows the student’s face to be visible.


Students are allowed to wear a wristwatch and one plain stud earring in each lower lobe only. We ask that watches and plain stud earrings should not exceed a value of £20.

Make Up

Students will not be allowed to wear makeup in years 7, 8 and 9. In years 10 and 11 it must be subtle, as deemed appropriate by members of staff. For health and safety reasons, nail polish, acrylic nails and false eyelashes are not permitted.

Outdoor Wear

Edgar Wood Academy do not specify a specific coat. However, we do ask that the coat reflects the school ethos, this means no denim or garments inappropriately decorated with logos or slogans.
