Dress Code

Sixth Form will follow a smart casual dress code. 

Suitable attire may consist of the following clothing items: 

  • A fitted top (not a t-shirt)
  • A knitted jumper
  • A dress 
  • A skirt 
  • Smart trousers (not jeans or tracksuit)
  • Shoes, boots, plain dark trainers or canvas shoes
  • A cardigan
  • A blazer or suit jacket

Simple patterns and plain, solid colours will be best. 

Jewellery is permitted as long as it is not at the extremes of fashion. Nose piercings should be studs only. It remains the right of senior leaders within the Academy to determine whether jewellery is appropriate or not.  

Coats, scarves and gloves are of course allowed in winter but are not permitted to be worn inside classrooms or study areas. Attire should be warm enough to not wear these throughout the academic day. 

Clothing that is not permitted 

The following clothing is deemed too informal to be permitted as part of the Sixth Form dress and therefore should be avoided: 

  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Jeans/ripped trousers
  • Open toed shoes
  • Clothes with inappropriate slogans or pictures
  • Tops which show midriff 
  • Baseball caps or hats
  • Sportswear 
  • Hoodies, cropped t-shirts or trousers
  • Shirts which are very sheer

Sports Academy students will have permission to wear sporting attire. 

If students are not dressed appropriately, they will be asked to return home to change. 

It remains the right of the SLT within the Academy to determine whether an item of clothing is appropriate or not.
