Aim

To foster a business dress code within the Sixth Form for all Yr12 and Yr13 students.

Rationale

There is strong evidence to suggest that the way in which you choose to dress can significantly impact your approach to and the quality of your studying. We aim to create an ethos across the Sixth Form where students progress and develop, not just as learners but as young adults. At the heart of this decision is the attitude you demonstrate toward your studies and the way you conduct yourself around the building.

You will be required to dress in a manner appropriate for an office environment. You are expected to follow the criteria below and exercise personal choice over hairstyles, make-up, jewellery etc.

Expectations

Female

  • A smart blouse or other appropriate top that covers the shoulders
  • Skirt (not excessively long or short)
  • Trousers – smart in appearance (leggings are not acceptable)
  • Smart footwear – boots, trainers and stiletto heels are not suitable
  • No branded clothing is allowed

Male

  • A smart shirt with collar and tie
  • Trousers should be smart in appearance and of material which maintains a crease (denim is not acceptable)
  • Smart footwear – boots and trainers are not acceptable
  • No branded clothing is allowed

 

A Sixth Form lanyard must be visibly worn at all times. You may dress according to your faith but are asked that colours and styles adhere

to the general principals of the dress code The dress code is straight forward and management should be self-regulatory. It is important

that you question if what you choose to wear in the morning would be appropriate for a teacher to wear to school. If it is considered that you are dressed inappropriately, you will be sent home immediately to change.
