Academy Uniform

At The Dukeries Academy we expect everyone to take pride in their personal appearance. A smart school uniform helps us to make sure everyone feels part of The Dukeries ‘team’ and no one is left out.

We expect all students in KS3 and KS4 to wear:

  • The Academy Blazer
  • White, collared shirt
  • A black and gold tie
  • Plain black tailored trousers  – no jeans, chinos, tight, stretchy or legging styles
  • Plain black skirt, mid-thigh or longer- the style should fall away from the body. No tight, stretchy styles, but pleated skirts are acceptable.
  • Black socks/tights
  • A V-neck black jumper to be worn under the blazer (optional)
  • Sensible black shoes  –  no high heels, boots, trainers or canvas shoes

For PE:

  • For gym  – plain white T-shirt, black shorts, white socks, trainers
  • For games  – academy rugby shirt, green games socks, shin pads
