Hairstyles and Nails

Students are not to wear extreme hairstyles (e.g. lines shaved into hair, number 1 shave, extreme colours, lengths, Mohican styles etc). The academy reserves the right to decide what is extreme but invites students and parents to ask in advance if they need guidance. Nail extensions and nail varnish are not acceptable. All students will be asked to remove nail extensions and nail varnish. Parents are advised to ensure that their children know the implications of this rule. Hair clips must be small in size and have one plain, dark colour. Again, the Academy reserves the right to decide what is acceptable.

No students will be allowed to enter Park Academy or lessons with other facial piercings. No other jewellery should be worn except for a discreet watch, if required. Students will not be allowed to enter Park Academy with a visible tattoo.
