Uniform in the Sixth Form
The way our students are presented is very important to the school because they are ambassadors in the wider community and we want them to present a smart and professional image in keeping with the school ethos. Sixth Formers are also important role models for lower school pupils. We therefore expect our students to maintain a high standard of appearance at all times and to adhere to the school rules regarding dress code and uniform.
To enable us to reinforce and maintain these high standards it may be necessary on rare occasions to use appropriate sanctions. Students who wear items of uniform which do not fit in with the requirements that are outlined will be required to replace them. Parents are therefore urged to read the following information very carefully so that there can be no misunderstanding.
Staff do not want to be involved in arguments with Sixth Formers about what is or is not acceptable, and if a member of the Sixth Form team deems an item of clothing or an aspect of appearance unsuitable or inappropriate, their decision is final.
Hair: Dramatic changes in hair colour such as bleaching or bright colours will not be accepted; hair should be a natural hair shade. Extreme hairstyles are not acceptable, including when part or all of a student’s hair is cut, shaved with anything below a ‘grade 2’ or has ‘tramlines’. Boys must be clean shaven, facial hair is not allowed other than sideburns which must not be below the level of the earlobe.
Make-up: discreet if worn, nail varnish is not allowed.
