Students should present themselves at school dressed in a smart and modest manner with no extreme examples of clothes, footwear or hair. Wreake Valley Academy promotes a productive and purposeful ethos and the school uniform is part of this. The Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team are the final arbiters for all issues concerning uniform.
