Dress Code

Sixth Form students have their own dress code, which should be smart, clean and within the ethos of the School.

Students should ensure that their overall appearance is appropriate to that of a working environment. Students are reminded that they are in a School and will therefore come in to contact with much younger students throughout the day. Therefore, clothing that is deemed inappropriate will be challenged.

Most students meet our expectations on a daily basis, however, those that do not, will be sent home to remedy the problem. If this is not possible, they will be taken out of circulation for the day, including at break and lunch.
