Student Uniform Guide

At Bristol Metropolitan Academy we believe that students in years 7 to 11 should be dressed professionally in business dress to establish the correct attitude for learning.

Please view the link below for our current Uniform Policy

Uniform Policy

Student Appearance

Make Up

At BMA the wearing of makeup, including nail varnish, is discouraged as it is contrary to the business like values the Academy aims to promote. If make up is worn, then it must be of a very discrete nature. Acrylic nails should not be worn at any time.

Hair Styles

Must be neat and tidy. Extremes of fashion must be avoided. Use of hair dye to achieve an unnatural, two-toned or bleached coloured look is not permitted.

School Bags

All students should bring a ‘School Bag’ to school every day. A ‘School Bag’ is defined by the School as a bag which is suitable to carry books of up to A4 size, basic equipment and kit for other subjects. Typically, students carry small waterproof rucksacks. These can be stored in their locker during the day.


One pair of plain stud earrings no bigger than 5mm in diameter may be worn. Also, a wrist watch is permitted. Facial piercings are NOT permitted other than a single small stud in the nose. If worn students will be required to remove them. Apart from this, for Health and Safety reasons and to promote the general business-like values of the Academy, no jewellery may be worn.
