Sixth Form Dress Code


The students in years 12 and 13 are the oldest members of the student body and as such are expected to serve as positive role models to the rest of the school. The aim of the dress code is to create a good image of the Sixth Form within the school and the community. This dress code will also prepare the students for a possible future career where many will be obliged to wear smart or formal attire.

Male students:

  • Smart trousers such as those worn in a work place
  • Formal shirt and tie (patterned ties are permitted but not novelty ones)
  • Smart jacket, jumper or cardigan – optional
  • Smart shoes – such as those worn in an office.
  • Smart suits may be worn but are not compulsory

Female students:

  • Smart skirt or dress of a modest length e.g. short skirts within 2 inches of the knee
  • Smart blouse or shirt
  • Smart trousers such as those worn in a workplace – tailored not lycra/stretch fabrics
  • Smart shoes or boots (such as those worn in an office)– which should be secure to the foot and of a modest heel height
  • Smart jacket, jumper or cardigan – optional

All students must wear their identity badge and lanyards at all times.

Students are not permitted to wear the following:

  • Trainers
  • Flip Flops
  • Cropped or backless tops
  • Low cut tops
  • Joggers
  • Leggings
  • Jeans – of any colour
  • Hoodies
  • See through material
  • Vest tops
  • Shorts
  • Ugg style boots
  • Denim clothing
  • Polo shirts
  • No open toe shoes

These lists are not intended to be exhaustive

Hair and jewellery

  • Unconventional hair styles and extreme and unnatural hair colours are not acceptable.
  • No facial jewellery allowed
  • Ear lobe stretchers are not permitted
  • Tattoos must be covered – It is against the law for anyone under the age of 18 to have a tattoo and therefore we do not expect any of our yr 12 students to have one
  • A discreet amount of make-up may be worn

The Director of Sixth Form has the final decision upon what is and is not suitable attire for the Sixth Form.

Students who arrive at school in items not permitted within the dress code will be asked to go home and change into suitable clothing.

Mobile phones and ipods may be used in the Sixth Form Area but not around the main school.
