Sixth Form Dress Code
There is no Sixth Form uniform but you are expected to dress as if you are going to work in a professional setting.
All students are required to wear their identification lanyards at all times.
Whilst we encourage you to exercise your own judgement on professional appearance, there are some items which are deemed as unacceptable:
- Female tops – no spaghetti straps, strapless, low cut, see through or revealing midriffs. If we can see your underwear it is inappropriate. Tops should avoid being very tight and avoid large slogans or graphics.
- Skirts/dresses – these should not be too short, the ideal length is just above the knee. Clothing should not restrict movement nor should it prevent a task from being undertaken with dignity.
- Trousers/skirts/jackets – no leather, leggings, denim or ‘cargo‘ styles to be worn, not too tight/skinny.
- Jewellery and Piercings – no visible piercings other than small earrings allowed and other jewellery items should be conservative to not pose a risk to health and safety.
- No shorts, hoodies or leisure wear allowed (except for sports events)
- Footwear - trainers, Dr Marten boots, heel heights over 3 inches (8 cms), flip flops or open backed shoes are not allowed
- Both hair and facial hair should be appropriate for the working environment. Hair colour should be natural or conservatively dyed.
The Sixth Form dress code is not exhaustive in defining acceptable and unacceptable standards of dress and appearance. The final decision on whether you are deemed inappropriately dressed will be made by either the Head of Sixth Form or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Any member of the Sixth Form who does not conform to the dress code or who is considered inappropriately dressed will be sent home to change and will be asked to report back to a member of the Sixth Form Team on return.
One pair tracksuit bottoms, one hooded top, one skirt or pair of shorts, one polo top.
Footwear and team kit as appropriate to your sport.
