Academy Rules in relation to bags, coats, hair, make-up, jewellery and shoes are driven by the desire to ensure that students are smart, safe and ready for work.

It is important that Bede Academy students are mature and presented well. This will establish an identity within the community and build an excellent reputation for the Academy and students, both for their future careers and in representing Blyth as young ambassadors of whom their town can be proud.

Please do not spend excessive amounts of money on designer items as this may lead to theft or damage of the items or unhelpful competition among students. The Academy can take no responsibility for items which are lost or damaged at school. The simple message is: Do not bring expensive and/or precious items of clothing or other possessions into the Academy.
