School Uniform

All students are expected to attend school in full school uniform. We consider school uniform to be an important part of identifying with being a member of the school community.

The Nightingale Community Academy uniform is as follows:

  • Nightingale Community Academy blazer
  • Nightingale Community Academy tie
  • Nightingale Community Academy sweater
  • Plain white shirt
  • Plain black trousers (not jeans)
  • Black shoes without big logos on

On entry to Nightingale Community Academy, all students will be provided with one Nightingale Community Academy blazer, sweater and tie. All other items should be provided by parents/carers and are widely available from high street stores; we do not insist upon a particular style.

Students should not wear jewellery, although a small stud earring is allowed.

Hats, bandanas, combs in hair etc. are not permitted and should be handed in when students arrive at school. Outside jackets, gloves, scarves or hooded tops can be left in the classroom and should not be worn around school.

P.E. Kit

We will provide P.E. kit for students for their P.E. lessons, although students studying for the BTEC (Years 10 and 11) are expected to bring their own kit as this is a part of the qualification.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
