Sixth Form Dress Code Expectations
All Sixth Formers are expected to look smart and be attired and otherwise presented in a manner which befits a professional work-place, and which does credit to the students themselves and to the School. This applies to when students are at School and when they are representing the School in any capacity.
- Are to wear a smart tailored suit (not tight fitting) comprising of a dress, skirt or trousers of a dark colour (e.g. black, dark grey, navy blue). Jackets must be worn at all times.
- Trousers must reach the ankles, leggings or capri pants are not acceptable.
- If a skirt or dress is worn it must be of a respectable length, no shorter than a “knee above the knee”.
- Skirts, trousers and dresses made from stretch fabric must still allow the garment to drape and not be figure-hugging. Skirts which ride-up due to overly stretchy material and figure-hugging skirts are not acceptable.

If a teacher feels that a Sixth Form student is not adhering to the dress code, the student in question will be referred to the Head of Sixth Form. In the first instance, students will be advised on how to adjust their appearance to fit the dress code. If necessary, this will be followed up with a communication home. A Sixth Form student is a role model for the younger members of the School. Therefore, continued failure to meet expectations could result in a student being sent home to change.
