Wearing the Academy uniform is an important factor in establishing a pride in and identity with, the Academy and at the same time minimises social divisions between students. We expect all students to represent Ormiston Maritime Academy with very high personal standards and a high level of respect that they show towards themselves, and the Academy in the way they wear the uniform.
The uniform code states clearly that plain, black polishable shoes must be worn, this applies to both female and male students.
The retail shops that are found in any shopping centre or high street show students wearing uniform with black trainers or shoes, often stating the ‘back to school’ slogan.
We would ask you not to buy any of these advertised brands/examples and ensure that shoes are plain black and polishable with no coloured tags, logos, stripes, piping or decoration.
