Sixth form students are leaders in the school community, therefore dress and appearance must be appropriate to support and encourage the ethos of the school. Students must recognise the importance of setting an example to the younger members of the school community, parents, prospective employers and visitors to the school.
In order to avoid confusion the following guidelines apply:
- Tops should not be cropped, off the shoulder, ripped or low cut.
- Skirts should not be too short.
- Short shorts are not to be worn.
- Hats and bandanas should not be worn.
- Jeans should not be ripped, low cut or cut off. Underwear should not be visible.
- T-shirts should not have inappropriate slogans: a slogan is deemed to be inappropriate if it may cause offence or conflict.
- Footwear should be appropriate for the lesson. Flip-flops are a health and safety concern in the busy areas of the school and therefore should not be worn.
- Students will be sent home to change if they are wearing clothing deemed inappropriate by the Post 16 team.
