6th Form students will be regarded as role models for students lower down the school, and their standards of dress are an important part of the aspirational culture of the 6th form.
Students are asked to regard 6th Form dress requirements in a positive manner. It is increasingly common for 6th Forms to have an expectation that students come into school wearing business dress. The aim is to have a smart appearance that allows a degree of personal choice. However, your school is a workplace and your appearance should reflect that. On certain occasions, you will be required to dress formally in House colours (details below).
Clothing required for course specific reasons e.g. chef whites and sports clothes may be worn in those lessons as and when required by the teacher but must not be worn around the school in general.
Clothing that features logos, slogans or badges are unacceptable – this does not extend to manufacturers names or small logos that are displayed discreetly.
Hair must be of a natural colour, bright colours are not acceptable.
Hats and other headwear items are also deemed unacceptable.
Most jewellery is considered acceptable; however, students may be required to remove items if an excessive amount of jewellery is worn.
Because of the constant changes of fashion that take place, it has to remain the right of the Senior Leadership Team, and the 6th Form team to determine that a particular item of dress is not appropriate for school.
Students who turn up to school inappropriately dressed will be asked to go home and change.
Repeated failure to meet the expectations of 6th Form will lead to further disciplinary action.
