Uniform

At Belfast Royal Academy we take great pride in our pupils’ appearance and believe our school uniform is an important part of creating a sense of belonging to the School as well as setting the high standards we expect from all of our pupils.

We encourage our pupils to wear their uniform with pride and we have high expectations for pupils with regards to wearing their uniform correctly, especially on the journey to and from school, and following the school regulations.
