Sixth Form Dress Code

It is intended that Sixth Form students can retain some flexibility in their choice of what to wear within what is essentially a broad ‘uniform’ appropriate for a well-ordered learning environment. The Head of Sixth Form reserves the right to decide what is appropriate and what is not. If in doubt, check first.

Coats cannot be worn anywhere in the building apart from the Hub and Sixth Form students must wear their lanyards and ID/Access cards at all times.

The school operates a 'Dress Down Friday' each week for Sixth Form students. 

Monday to Thursday and for all examinations the Sixth Form Dress Code is:
