Uniform and Basic Equipment

Why do we have a uniform?

  • It helps to create a positive learning environment.
  • It encourages formality and smartness which will be required by future employers.
  • It promotes team spirit and identity. We are a community and students are recognised
    as being from The Brunts Academy.
  • Students are expected to wear their uniform with pride and in such a way that reflects the ethos of high standards and achievement at The Brunts Academy. Smartness, health and safety considerations and common sense form the basis of the expected standards of appearance.

Basic Equipment

We expect all students to arrive to school ready to learn so that lesson time is maximised. With this in mind, students should all have the following equipment with them every day:

  • Pen (black) - for writing in books
  • Green pen for responding to teacher feedback
  • Pencil - for diagrams and drawings
  • Sharpener
  • Rubber
  • Ruler - all dates and titles should be underlined with a ruler in books and tables/diagrams with straightlines should also be completed using a ruler
  • Scientific calculator - particularly for maths and science lessons
  • Any books that are required for lessons on that day
  • PE Kit on the days it is required

We expect students have a school bag for the above and a pencil case to keep basic equipment in.
