Dress Code

It is essential that all students adhere to the sixth form dress code.  A copy of the dress code is on display outside the sixth form office.  School is a learning environment and therefore a place of work.

It is expected that all students will wear a lanyard at all times on the school premises.  If students forget their lanyard, they may get a spare lanyard from the sixth form office.  If a student loses their lanyard there is a £5.00 replacement fee.

The positive atmosphere of our Sixth Form is important to all of us and the Sixth Form team do not want to spend time on uniform infringements.

Should any concerns regarding dress code or appearance arise, the Sixth Form Team will address the concern raised with the student.The Sixth Form Team have the final say on issues of dress and appearance.

For any students who arrive to sixth form not following our dress code will be spoken with by a member of the sixth form team and will study/work in the Mezz for the duration of that day.For any further infringements of our dress code, students will be sent home and parents/carers will be notified of this decision.
