Key info

Uniform

Uniform can be purchased from these suppliers:
We believe that high standards of dress are important for students as individuals and the Academy as a whole.  Our uniform has been chosen because it represents the clearly identifiable standard for The MFG.  It is straightforward and smart.  It is compulsory for all students, and parents are asked to support the staff in monitoring their child’s dress.  The wearing of items of clothing relating to religious beliefs is acceptable, so long as they are in Academy colours.
  • Academy blazer with badge (Students in the ‘wrong’ colour blazer or with an unofficial badge, will be asked to purchase a new one from our school suppliers
  • Academy tie (available from our suppliers or school)
  • Plain white blouse/shirt with a conventional collar
  • Mid-grey tailored trousers, not black or tight fitting (see below)
  • Footwear – shoes (not trainers) should be plain black and either flat soles or with a conventional low heel (5cm max). Backless shoes, high heels and boots and leisure or leisure-looking shoes are not acceptable (see below)
  • Grey, V-neck, knitted jumper (optional for winter)
  • Socks should be white, black or grey. Tights should be black, grey or neutral

Equipment

It is important that children come to the Academy ready and equipped for all lessons. Whilst all planners, exercise and text books will be provided, students will be expected to bring a pencil case containing the items below. We expect students to bring a bag big enough to carry these items. For PE lessons, students will be expected to change into their PE kit (see Kit section). Students require a yellow apron for DT lessons (or an alternative apron suitable for school). If students lose or damage their books or planner, they will be expected to pay for a replacement.
Students will need to bring the following items to school:
  • Student planner and areading book of your choice
  • A yellow apron for Food lessons (or apron appropriate for use in school)
Equipment in Pencil Case
  • Pens (black/purple)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Set of colouring pencils
  • Rubber
  • Whiteboard pen
  • Glue stick
  • Geometry set with protractor and compass
  • Calculator (ideally a CASIO fx-83GTX or CASIO fx-85GTX Solar)
