Sixth Form Dress Code
Our Sixth Form students are role models to the rest of the school. It should never be underestimated how much the younger students watch and look up to them on a daily basis.
The aim of the Sixth Form Dress Code is to ensure that students project a personally distinctive and smart image, which will reflect their attitude to learning and the community values and high standards of the school as a whole. Through the dress code, we aim to:
- encourage pride in our school;
- support teaching and learning and a positive work ethic;
- enable all of our students to feel comfortable, safe and secure;
- ensure that all students of different social, religious and ethnic groups feel welcome; and
- foster a sense of equality and community cohesion
It is therefore essential that students dress in a way that is suitable for our environment and are coordinated in both style and colour. Extremes of fashion do not have a place in the school or workplace, although we are proud to support, and indeed encourage students to have their own identities, which includes the way they present themselves. It is for this reason that our Dress Code was created with and for students and allows considerable individuality.
More information on our Dress Code can be found here: Sixth Form Dress Code (September 2022). Students who fail to adhere to the dress code will be warned, loaned suitable clothing from the Sixth Form office, and in some cases be asked to go home and change or work in isolation in the Manor. The Sixth Form office will have the final decision on appropriate dress.
Requests to vary the code for particular reasons, such as medical needs, will always be carefully considered. See the Head of Sixth Form in the first instance or email her here
