Weston Favell Academy


The Weston Favell Academy has strict guidelines on uniform and all secondary pupils are expected to wear the full Academy uniform.

The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging', helps foster pride in the Academy and stops pupils coming to school in inappropriate clothing or footwear.

Pupils are expected to wear Academy uniform when travelling to and from the Academy, at all Academy functions and on visits by parties or sports teams.

Jewellery is not allowed, except for one pair of small, plain, golden or silver studs worn in the lobes of the ear. Ear-rings, rings, nose studs, tongue piercings or other facial jewellery, nail varnish, nail extensions and make up are not allowed.

Electrical items, such as mobile phones or ipods etc are also not allowed in the Academy.


Excessive hair styles are not allowed and all pupils with long hair must have it tied back with a dark coloured hair bobble whilst on the Academy site. All headwear must be black and ‘Cuts' of any shape or design are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours.
