Uniform

We have a smart uniform which students are expected to wear at all times. All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

A house-coloured tie will be provided by OBA for all new Year 7 students as part of their induction into the academy.

Following our new house launch, the tie design is still the same but we no longer have the colour purple attached to a house. House colours are:

  • Red (Draco House)
  • Green (Orion House)
  • Blue (Pegasus House)
  • Yellow (Ursa House)

Students in Years 8 to 11 do not need to purchase a new coloured tie immediately, unless they wish to do so.
