Professional Dress Code

General Information

  • Students should dress in a smart manner. A high standard of appearance enables sixth formers to act as role models for students and allows them to focus on their studies.
  • All students are expected to adhere to the dress code and any deviation from what is expected will result in students being sent home to change.
  • All decisions on dress code should be made with common sense and modesty in mind.
  • Jewellery is acceptable as long as it is practical for the subject being taken, e.g. design and technology.
  • If you take a practical subject such as PE you should only be dressed in sports clothing for that lesson and should be in dress code appropriate clothing the rest of the time.
  • Shoes should be smart and tidy. No trainers, Converse, flip flops, sandals or canvas shoes. Heels are acceptable as long as they are a sensible height – use common sense.
  • Hats and hoods should not be worn inside or outside the building. Coats must be removed for lessons.
  • Hair should not be of the extreme. This means no bright unnatural colours or patterned shaved designs etc.
  • Facial piercings and tattoos should not be visible.



  • Shirts or polo shirts should be worn. T-shirts and other casual tops should not be worn. Colours should not be overly bright or garish. Ties may be worn if you so wish.
  • Trousers should be worn. Trousers can be smart, tailored trousers or more casual chino-like trousers as long as they look smart and neat. Jeans, tracksuit bottoms, shorts and joggers are not acceptable. Sports kit should only be worn by students partaking in PE lessons.
  • Jumpers etc are acceptable as long as they are not sportswear (hoodies etc) and look smart, e.g. no big logos or images.



  • All clothing must be modest. No short skirts/shorts or revealing outfits (such as crop tops/fishnet tights/low cut tops, etc). Casual dresses are acceptable, as are pencil skirts, as long as they are modest. Tops/blouses/jumpers/cardigans are fine as long as they are not garish colours or have large logos.
  • Trousers are fine, as long as they are not jeans. Leggings should only be worn if under a skirt/dress or long top. Leggings should not be worn with blouses or shirts that make them too revealing.
  • Make up is acceptable as long as it is modestly applied.


The final decision on what is acceptable lies with the Head of Sixth Form in liaison with the Head
