We are proud of our young people and encourage them to be proud of their school and their community. One key aspect of this is that all of our students will wear a smart uniform. This promotes safety, a sense of community and demonstrates that students are ready to work.

Students must be impeccably presented in the correct school uniform at all times. The KAA uniform consists of a grey blazer, striped tie (in house colours)*, maroon jumper, white shirt or blouse and dark grey trousers. Girls can choose between a pleated skirt or trousers.

*please note that when your child joins KAA their house tie will be allocated to them on their first day and you will need to pay for it via ParentPay. It does not need to be purchased in advance with the rest of your child’s uniform.

Uniform pointers

• Students must have their shirts tucked in at all times

• Ties must be tied professionally

• Leather school shoes are compulsory – no trainers, ballet-pumps or canvas shoes. Trainers cannot be worn at any time except in PE lessons.

• No jewellery (except watches)

• Nail polish and make-up are not allowed

• Sensible, ‘professional’ haircuts for boys and girls. Short hair on boys should not be cut below a ‘grade 2′.

• School bags must be the official KAA version

• Coats must be the official KAA version or a plain black, dark grey or dark blue coat without any visible logos

• Hats must be either the official KAA hat or a plain black, dark grey or dark blue woollen hat

If a student arrives at school with the incorrect uniform we will contact the parent or carer and, with their permission, send the student home to resolve the issue. If we are unable to contact home the student will be placed in internal exclusion.
