Dress Code

Sixth Formers return to school voluntarily as their place of study and work.  A privilege of membership of senior school deems that for Sixth Form students there is no longer a requirement to wear school uniform. However, as senior students there is a responsibility to dress as befitting a working environment and thus a dress code applies.

This acknowledges student individuality, yet ensures that students are well presented in the community and are role-models to pupils in Years 7-11.

Dress Code 

Clothes should be worn that are appropriate for a place of study and work. Smart casual clothes are appropriate for school. These include trousers, jeans, shirts, t-shirts (no inappropriate logos or wording), jumpers, cardigans, sweatshirts and hoodies (hood worn down in school).

You are in a working environment and so strapless or shoulderless tops, short skirts, shorts, plunging necklines and vest tops are not appropriate.

ALL Senior Students play a valuable role as role models, and an appropriate dress code encourages younger pupils to assume high standards.   Senior staff are the arbiters of what is acceptable.  Students may be asked to leave site if they do not adhere to the dress code.
