Post-16 Dress Code

We encourage all of our students to take pride in their dress and appearance. We also encourage you to take responsibility for your own appearance and uphold the policy as detailed below.

 

Within the sixth form you are required to dress modestly in clothing of your choice. If your dress or footwear is seen as inappropriate you will be told and expected not to be seen in it again at sixth form. Furthermore, you may be sent home to change and come back in more appropriate and sensible dress or footwear.
