General

There is no stipulation about the colour/pattern of any of the above clothing, except that it would be considered appropriate for a front line office environment.

The expectation is that students will adhere to the above dress code when walking around the school. It is at the discretion of their class teacher to allow minor changes to the dress code once inside the classroom, laboratory, studio or workshop.

In maintaining a smart appearance Sixth Form students should consider themselves role models to students in the rest of the school. The assistance of parents/carers in maintaining smart dress is very much appreciated.

Hairstyles: Hairstyles should be sensible. Extreme style and colour will NOT be permitted.

Jewellery: To be kept to a minimum.

We also ask that students do not use mobile phones or have headphones on around the school site (such as whilst moving between lessons). They should limit their usage to the Sixth Form areas (LRC2 and the café) at break and lunch-time.
