SIXTH FORM DRESS CODE

There is a Dress Code for 6th form students, rather than a prescribed uniform. Students must wear a suit of a nature suitable for a formal interview which must be matching in colour and design. The suit must not be of denim or corduroy material and must not be skin-tight. Trousers may not look like jeans and must be of a classic full-length style. If wearing a skirt as part of the suit it must be of a reasonable length (close to the knee). In such cases, tights should be blue, black, brown or flesh coloured.  Shirts should be of a plain colour or striped and made of a fabric which is not see-through and work with a school tie. Shirts/blouses must have a collar, be buttoned up appropriately and tucked in. A tie need not be worn with a blouse but when worn must always be fully done up and collars buttoned. 

V-neck pullovers, waistcoats or cardigans may be worn as optional extras but the suit jacket must be worn over the top. Sweat shirts, zipped cardigans, round-neck pullovers or any garments with logos or wording should not be worn. 

Black or brown leather shoes are to be worn: boots, boat shoes, plimsolls, trainers, and any other footwear are not acceptable. Shoes can only have heels of modest height. Socks must be worn, should be barely visible and should be in keeping with a style for formal interview. Sports socks of any colour should not be worn when in suits. 

Coats should be smart; navy or black. When worn, they must be over the top of, and not instead of, a suit jacket. They should not be worn inside and only worn outside when appropriate for the conditions. Scarves should be of an unobtrusive colour and pattern; football scarves or those with logos and lettering are not acceptable. 

Hair should be a length and style that does not draw undue attention to itself; this includes dyeing. Students are expected to be clean shaven at all times, and with sideburns that do not extend below the level of the ear lobe, nor across the cheek.

Make-up, nail polish and jewellery should be suitable for attending a formal interview. Earrings or studs must be discreet; no other ornamental piercing is accepted.

Hair, make-up and jewellery should be in keeping with the formal interview standard as above.

The Sixth Form Management Team reserves the right to decide on the acceptability of any aspect of clothing or personal appearance.
