Our Values

Uniform and Equipment

Uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. 


Our uniform instils pride; supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils.


The Shoreham Academy student dress code is fair and reasonable and the uniform chosen, after consultation with parents and students, is practical, comfortable, appropriate and affordable. All our students are expected to conform to the dress code.  We consider our requirements to be reasonable and therefore we do expect parental support.



If you have difficulty in providing your child with school uniform, clothing grants are available depending upon your income.   Applications for assistance may be made through the Academy. Also if you are unsure of any of our requirements then we ask that you please contact the Academy prior to purchasing that item.

Our requirements are as follows:

Girls and Boys

  • Navy blue blazer with pale blue piping and school logo (boy and girl styles available)
  • Pale blue school shirt (Years 7, 8 and 9) worn tucked in with the top button done up
  • White school shirt (Years 10 and 11), worn tucked in with the top button done up
  • Academy tie in house colours. Worn at 10 stripes in length.
  • Black leather school shoes.  There is no plimsoll alternative and no trainers. No plimsoll or trainer brands are permitted
  • Dark colour socks or white socks
  • Optional navy blue jumper with school logo
  • navy blue school trousers or navy-blue tartan school skirt (worn at full length). If a skirt is worn pupils can wear black/natural tights but leggings are not permitted.
  • Face masks are a personal choice

All uniform can be purchased online from our uniform supplier Monkhouse who were chosen as the best value provider: The school blazer, jumper, tie and skirt must be purchased from Monkhouse , please note if you purchase similar products from other uniform suppliers they may not conform to the uniform policy. All other items of uniform are available from a range of suppliers including second hand providers.
