Dress Code

Sixth Form students are role models for our school community. As such, they are expected to dress smartly. All Sixth Form Students are issued with an ID pass and a lanyard, which they must wear at all times.

Female:

  • Tailored jacket
  • Tailored trousers, skirt or dress. The skirt or dress should be no higher than 3” above the knee
  • A conventional blouse or shirt
  • Plain leather shoes, capable of being polished, or smart sandals

Male:

  • Conventional suit, shirt and tie
  • Plain leather shoes, capable of being polished

Unacceptable items:

  • Jeans, trousers with pockets on the back that look like jeans or combat trousers
  • Jeggings or leggings
  • Corduroy or denim material in any colour
  • Shorts or skorts
  • Leather trousers
  • Hoodies
  • T-shirts
  • Logos
  • Strapless tops, sheer or low cut clothing that exposes the midriff or shoulders
  • Head garments (except for parentally confirmed religious or medical reasons)
  • Sportswear / leisurewear, including velour and cotton jersey
  • Unnatural hair colourings or extreme hairstyles
  • Visible tattoos, facial piercings and excessive jewellery
  • No trainers, sports shoes (Converse, Vans etc), Uggs, Timberland or similar style boots, excessively high heels or flip flops

Coats are to be deposited in bags or lockers before the school day begins and should not be worn around school. Students may bring in an appropriate change of clothes - to be worn only in the relevant lesson - for certain subjects, e.g. PE, Drama, Art. 
 
Due to ever-changing fashions, the list above is not exhaustive. We do ask that parents and carers support students in using their judgement for some specific garments. We reserve the right to send a student home to change their outfit should we judge their clothing to be in breach of the dress code. Time spent this way will need to be made up by the student.
