The Sixth Form dress code plays an important role in contributing to the ethos and values of both the sixth form and the wider school. The dress code should allow students to express themselves as individuals, but in an appropriate way.
It is particularly important that the dress code recognises that the school is a working environment for students and staff; the public perception of the school should be important to all of us.

Students may seek to wear, for example, items which have not been covered by the above guidelines, but which are against the spirit of this dress code.

Students will be spoken to in the first instance, re-occurrence could result in students being sent home to change, and a formal consequence awarded.
