School dress is smart, economical and encourages identification with the school. Pupils are expected to wear school uniform while at school and when participating in organised school trips. Uniform has been strongly supported by parents in the past and it is hoped that parents will continue to play their part in promoting the wearing of school dress by all pupils at Mearns Academy.

Academy Uniforms Limited provide Mearns Academy uniforms via an on line service; the approximate cost of a blazer is £32 – www.academyuniformsltd.co.uk

Acceptable school dress is as follows:

Blazers are compulsory for all prefects and there is an expectation that blazers are worn by pupils in all other year groups.  White shirt, school tie, plain black jersey or cardigan, black trousers/skirt. It is also requested that black/brown shoes are worn or completely black trainers with no other colour. Hoodies should not be worn in classrooms, assembly etc. PE kit is: white t-shirt/polo shirt/vest and black shorts/track pants/leggings.

Shirts should be tucked in trousers/skirts, unless they are ‘fitted’ when they can be left out. Ties should be worn at or near the neck.  If cardigans and sweatshirts have logos on them (other than the school crest), these should be small and discreet. Jackets may be worn to move around the school, but must be removed in class and at assemblies. These should be dark in colour and free from large motifs or legends. Denim or denim-look jackets, denim or denim-look jeans, football scarves and other cult emblems or badges should not be worn to school.
