Dress Code

Sixth Form students should be smartly presented in such that they act as role models for the rest of the school community. The guidelines below set out clearly what is acceptable dress for the Sixth Form, with the focus very much on smart business wear. However, we feel that this also gives students the opportunity to express their individual style as part of their appearance.
