School Jacket

The school jacket is preferable.

On a very wet day, students may wear suitable alternatives to and from school if desired. On school grounds and for trips/activities the school jacket is preferable. No other jacket can be worn during lessons.

There are three separate buildings in Abbey Community College. The school jacket offers an extra layer of warmth and is shower proof. Our students are easily identified to us when in uniform thus making Abbey Community College a safer environment for all.

P.E. Uniform

Our P.E. Uniform is compulsory.
