Children wearing Gosforth Academy School Uniform

School Uniform

School Uniform, including information relating to uniform logo changes, as well as when and where to purchase uniform.

We regard the wearing of school uniform as very important and seek the support of parents/carers in maintaining our very high standards in this respect.

We expect students to come to school looking tidy and presentable. 

Jewellery is restricted to a watch. We reserve the right to confiscate, or insist that students remove, any item which contravenes these guidelines or which we deem to be a potential safety hazard. 

Hair accessories should be plain black, navy or white and not excessive. 

Religious headwear must be plain black, navy or white.

Personal stereos must not be worn, nor should mobile phones be switched on or visible inside the building.

Excessive makeup, false nails and nail varnish are not allowed.

Hairstyles must not be extreme, avant-garde or an unnatural colour.  We reserve the right to determine what is a reasonable style or colour of hair and to insist that students with inappropriate hairstyles have them restyled or coloured, wear a suitable covering or remain in isolation in school until we consider their hair to be acceptable. 

Hats, scarves, T-shirts, jeans, sportswear, boots or trainers of any colour must not be worn in school.

Our lists are often not exhaustive as it is not possible to catalogue every scenario that could be deemed a breach of policy. Please note that the senior staff team reserves the right to determine what may or may not breach our own policies. 

All students will require the following main uniform items:

  • Black rain showerproof jacket with school logo and/or black outdoor micro fleece with school logo (coast can be worn together)
  • Black pleated skirt or black trousers. Trousers should be of either banner Greenwich or flat iron or single pleat style
  • Navy sweatshirt with school logo
  • White polo shirt with school logo
  • Black shoes (no boots or trainers)
  • Food technology apron - blue & white stripe design is preferred

Students joining Year 9 in September 2024 will wear uniform tops with the green circle around the school logo, continuing through to Year 10 and Year 11.

All students will have the school outdoor fleece or the school rain jacket as the only type of coats allowed. Wearing a school coat on the journey to school is compulsory for all students following the October half term holiday and up to the February half term holiday. Non-uniform items such as fleeces or hoodies cannot be worn under school coats or over school sweatshirts.

Logo Trio
All students in Year 9 to Year 11 will require the following PE/sports wear items:
  • Navy/amber polo shirt (indoor and summer term lessons)

    • Navy/amber rugby shirt with school logo, or
    • Mid-layer navy outdoor top with school logo  (winter/spring lessons)

Dance Uniform:

All students studying Dance are expected to wear exactly the same uniform as they wear for PE. Optional Dance hoodies are also available from Mrs Foster at an additional cost. No other hoody will be permitted and failure to wear the correct uniform will result in a planner comment.

Note to parents/carers:

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is recommended, e.g. shin pads and mouth-guards for contact sports such as football, hockey and rugby.
  • All jewellery should be removed.
