Students of Breda Academy are expected to dress smartly and in compliance with the school uniform requirements.  A school is both a community and a working environment.  Smart uniform is one way in which we express our readiness and our determination to promote a positive image for ourselves and our fellow students within and beyond the school.

Wearing a uniform ensures all students feel welcome. It promotes inclusion and relations between different groups of students.
