Dress Code

Whilst there is a uniform for students in the Lower School, all Sixth Form students are given flexibility and responsibility and are asked to dress smartly. Our guidelines are to dress in appropriate clothing and footwear that is suitable to their roles as senior students. We ask that this reflects our ethos and the smart standard expected of the rest of the school.

Students should wear: 

A matching suit 

  • This means a jacket with tailored trousers or tailored skirt suitable for a formal workplace. 
  • Body con style skirts can only be worn if they are suitable for a formal workplace. 
  • An optional school suit is available from the school 

Sensible shoes or boots 

  • Trainers, sliders and sandals are not permitted 

A blouse, shirt or top without logos and slogans which covers the midriff 

  • A jumper or cardigan which can be worn under the suit jacket if cold 

In addition, please be aware of the following: 

  • Jackets must be worn around the school 
  • Earings, necklaces and bracelets are permitted but students may be asked to remove them in lessons for health and safety reasons. 
  • One single stud piercing in the nostril is permitted. 
  • A shoulder length scarf or Hijab may cover the head for religious reasons 
  • Students should not have visible tattoos  
  • Hoodies should not be worn in school 
  • Outdoor coats should be kept in lockers or in the Sixth Form Common Room  

We understand that sometimes making decisions about appropriate clothing can be difficult and are always available to help if any Sixth Former is unsure about the dress code.   

As the senior pupils in the school, the Sixth Form are the role models for the rest of the school, and we ask them to take that responsibility seriously. 

Mobile Phones and Valuables 

Mobile telephones – may only be used in sixth form study spaces during study periods. Mobile phones should not be seen in the corridors.  

Purses/money must be kept on the person at all times. It is recommended that pupils do not bring valuables or sentimental items to school. The school cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to the personal property of pupils.
