What is our dress code?

The way students dress in the Sixth Form is very important, and a basic standard of dress suitable for a professional, co-educational environment is expected for all students.  Sixth Form students are encouraged to set an example to lower school and we hope to leave it to students to make sensible judgements but the following code is in place:

  • Clothing should be clean and tidy – no ripped jeans.
  • Sensible and inoffensive dress is required at all times.
  • Shorts or skirts should be of a sensible length .
  • Beach or surfing shorts are not allowed.
  • Heels should be kept to a sensible height.
  • Cropped tops, vest tops and replica sports strips may not be worn. Shoulders and tattoos must be covered.
  • Hats may not be worn inside the school buildings.
  • No facial piercing is allowed; no body piercing should be visible.
  • PE kit should be suitable to the sport being played.
