Uniform

We are proud of our Academy and expect all students to wear our simple uniform with pride. This includes the PE kit and specialist equipment for technology. Please leave jewellery at home. If jewellery is worn, this must be in accordance with the Academy dress code.

Jewellery

Students are not allowed to wear excessive or expensive jewellery at Ormiston Forge Academy. This is not only to prevent the loss of valuable items but also to encourage neatness in dress and appearance. If studs are worn, only one pair can be worn in earlobes. Nose studs or any visible body piercing are not permitted. All jewellery must be removed for PE due to health and safety regulations.

Makeup

Makeup and nail varnish is not permitted in years 7, 8 and 9. Discrete make-up and nail varnish only, for years 10 and 11.
