Sixth Form Dress Code

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.


  • A business suit (optional)
  • Jacket (optional)
  • Shirt or polo shirt
  • Tie (optional)
  • Smart footwear


  • 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.
