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

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.
