Sixth Form Dress Code

Last updated: 16/11/2015

As recognition of the Sixth Form students’ growing maturity and independence, our dress code is based upon business principles. 

We believe that a business dress code will promote fairness and equality for both boys and girls in the Sixth Form as well as giving them a more adult image; the dress code strikes a balance between some degree of individuality whilst recognising the importance of setting an example to the younger members of the school community. 

Business Dress Code

  • Smart plain clothing and footwear appropriate for the workplace

  • No jeans, leggings, denim or trainers/pumps

  • Extremes of fashion or hairstyle that draw undue attention are not permitted. This applies to all items of clothing in school.

  • Jewellery should be discreet and facial piercings are not permitted.

Boys

  • A business suit (optional)

  • Jacket (optional)

  • Shirt or polo shirt

  • Tie (optional)

  • Smart footwear

Girls 

  • A business suit (optional)

  • Jacket (optional)

  • Skirt, dress or tailored trousers

  • Smart footwear

  • No vests or low cut tops - all tops must have a sleeve.

The school retains the right to act as the final authority in the interpretation of the dress code. Students who are dressed in an undignified manner and/or are in breach of the Dress Code will be sent home. 

Parents and students are advised to contact the Director of Sixth Form or a member of the Sixth Form Team for clarification before purchasing an item.
