Dress Code

Sixth Form Dress Code

Sixth form students are expected to dress in a way that is appropriate for a professional business working environment. The sixth form dress code plays an important role in contributing to the ethos and highest standards of both the sixth form and the wider school. Our sixth form students are leaders in the school and a role model to the younger students.

General Principle

  • Clothes should be appropriate to a professional business environment
  • Excessive make-up and excessive jewellery are not allowed

Required Dress

  • Tailored trouser or skirt suit; dress with tailored jacket or blazer
  • Blouse or shirt
  • Formal Shoes 
(no trainers, sneakers, pumps or canvas shoes)

Please Note:

  • Minimal décolleté and no bare midriffs
  • Skirts should not be excessively short 

  • The following items are not permitted: shorts, jeans, denim, leather, leggings, sweatshirts, t- 
shirts, vests or strapped tops 

  • No garments bearing a slogan may be worn
  • Leather coats or jackets are not acceptable
  • Facial and body piercings, apart from a pair of discreet earrings in the lobe, are not acceptable
  • No extreme hair styles or unnatural hair colour
  • No trainers or canvas shoes

ID Badges are part of the dress code and must be worn at all times. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in students being sent home.


The Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher make the final decision on appropriate dress.


Parents or carers who are unable to provide their daughter with the required items should contact Mrs Payne in the Sixth Form office. Such approaches will be handled with discretion and sensitivity.
