At ISA, we have a strict dress code, which puts the focus on academics, not fashion, and creates a sense of school pride and belonging. Students’ personal appearance should therefore reflect respect for themselves, their school and the community. Mandatory school uniforms are available for purchase from the School Office; they must be worn on each school day and kept tidy and in good repair.
|Reception, Y1,Y2||Short sleeved-shirt (in UN blue) with the school’s logo on the pocket shorts in navy blue with side pockets and belt loops|
|Year 3 – 9 Boys||Short sleeved-shirt (in UN blue) with the school’s logo on the pocket shorts in navy blue with side pockets and belt loops|
|Year 3 – 9 Girls||Short sleeved-shirt (in UN blue) with the school’s logo on the pocket skirt in navy blue|
|PE – All||Royal blue school polo shirts sold at the School Office, preferably with black shorts|
Appropriate swim wear, along with a towel and goggles, is required for swimming lessons. Uniform shirts must be tucked in at the waist and girls’ skirts must be of a modest length. Parents are encouraged to clearly mark all items of clothing with their child’s name.
Girls must keep their hair tidy and tied back from the face. For boys, hair must be kept short and neatly trimmed. Extreme or extravagant hairstyles and colours are not allowed.
School shoes must be plain black with no heel. They must be practical and completely attached to the feet with a sturdy sole for health and safety reasons. Slippers are not allowed.
Jewellery and Make-up
Girls with pierced ears may wear one stud in each ear and a wristwatch but no other jewellery is acceptable e.g. no hanging or loop earrings or other piercings are permitted. No earrings are permitted for boys, or nose rings or other visible body piercing of any sort for either sex. Similarly, make-up, including nail polish, acrylic and false nails are not permitted.
Students are encouraged to wear hats and caps while participating in activities outdoors due to health concerns of prolonged or excessive exposure to direct ultraviolet radiation of sunlight. Nevertheless, slogans, images and designs must be discreet. Hats are not permitted indoors at any time.
