Please note that jewellery cannot be worn for participation in PE. For this reason, we advise that girl’s ears should not be pierced immediately prior to starting the Academy in September as plasters worn over earrings are not permitted.

If parents are not sure what the Academy views as “extreme” they are advised to seek clarification before any styling or colouring is undertaken.
