Uniform

We believe good standards of dress and personal presentation promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour whilst identifying students to the local community and future employers as proud members of a high quality educational establishment.  The cooperation of all parents and carers is requested to ensure that students are in correct uniform at all times.

PLEASE NOTE:  THETFORD ACADEMY MAKES THE FINAL DECISION AS TO WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE OR WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE IN ALL ASPECTS OF A STUDENT’S APPEARANCE.

If you are not able to participate in PE as a performer, you will still need to bring your PE kit and get changed.

If you fail to bring your PE kit, you will be expected to borrow from the PE Department.
