Our Uniform










A uniform designed by students.

At Bolder Academy we want our students to be proud of their school and to be ambassadors for it. Wearing the uniform is part of this, as well as reducing anxieties about what they need to wear to school on a daily basis. 

It will be at the school’s discretion whether shoes and earrings comply with our school uniform policy.  We ask parents/carers to respect and support the school’s decision.

Our uniform can be purchased from:

School Bells: 48 Bell Road, Hounslow, TW3 3PB.

Telephone: 0208 577 6656


Uniform Expectations

Students should have the following uniform which should be checked by staff on duty before school, in morning line and by all staff throughout the day.

  • Blazer
  • Tie
  • Bolder trousers or skirt
  • White shirt, tucked in
  • Black shoes (no trainers)
  • PE kit on days that students have PE
  • Blue or black coat- no hoodies

The following are permitted in school:

  • Light makeup (no false eyelashes)
  • Multiple earrings (only studs)
  • Discreet bracelets and necklaces (allowed under uniform as long as they cannot be seen)
  • Short false nails
  • Pale nail polish (bright colours will not be permitted)

The following are not permitted:

  • Nose studs
  • False eyelashes
  • Trainers (unless students have medical evidence)
  • Boots
  • Hoodies, denim jackets and sports jumpers/sweatshirts

We strongly urge any new piercings to be done during the summer holidays as this allows them to heal. The school will not accept the excuse that the hole will close up. Piercings (other than studs in their ears) will need to be removed; we will not allow clear piercings or for them to be covered with plasters.

Jewellery, hoodies and trainers must be confiscated by staff and handed to reception. They can be collected by students at the end of the week.

If a student is not in the correct uniform, parents/carers will be informed and the student will be placed into Internal Exclusion until their uniform is rectified.

Application for Uniform Grants

If you are on a low income, and need support in purchasing the school uniform, you may be entitled to a Uniform Grant.  Please apply directly to Hounslow Council by following this link:
