• Uniform creates a sense of equality amongst all pupils. Pupils’ starting point becomes who they are and not what they are wearing.
  • Uniform creates a common identity, a sense of belonging and thus pride in the Academy.
  • Uniform sets the tone and attitude for serious learning and achievement.
  • Wearing uniform prepares pupils for the dress requirements of the world of work, a valuable lesson the workplace and for life in general.
  • Uniform makes The Bramble Academy pupils easily identifiable in the local community and on Academy trips.

The clothes we have selected are simple and appropriate for a place of learning. Our uniform therefore, listed below, gives flexibility of choice whilst maintaining an overall school identity.

For Health and Safety reasons jewellery is not permitted with the exception of small plain stud earrings.
