UAE Uniform and More

Our uniform is an important part of our collective identity

All students at the University Academy of Engineering South Bank are expected to wear their uniform in its entirety to the Academy as it is an important part of our collective identity and sense of community. Each student will be an ambassador for the Academy and it is important that they present themselves as ambassadors at all times, including when they are in public places or traveling to and from the Academy.


Hair must be worn in appropriate style. They must not contain any patterns or be in a style or colour the school governors believe will undermine the ethos of the school.
Must be clear and natural. If students have false nails, they will be asked to remove them immediately.

It is very important in a STEAM Academy that students are able to engage in all activities. Jewellery can be dangerous for many activities and therefore unsuitable for The Academy.  Students will therefore only be permitted to wear small single stud earrings (plain gold or plain silver), one in each lobe and a watch. Watches may be handed to a teacher during certain activities such as P.E.  Students with additional piercings will be asked to remove them immediately.

By coming to the academy in your correct uniform you show that you are proud to be a member of UAE. By wearing it correctly around the school, you show you are ready to learn and prepared to work in a professional environment with likeminded peers and teachers. You should always wear uniform when coming to and leaving school. Students are not allowed to wear hooded jumpers or caps to and from school. Any items worn or found on students that are prohibited will be confiscated and returned at the end of the week.

Students will be greeted at the gate each morning.
