Sixth Form Uniform

We have high expectations of our Sixth Formers and this includes personal appearance.  We believe that our uniform policy benefits the school in a number of ways:

 

  • It encourages identification with the school and nurtures the notion of community
  • It protects students from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • It supports discipline and good behaviour and ensures the health and safety of students
  • It instils a sense of pride in the school
  • It allows staff to concentrate their time and effort on teaching and learning

 

The decision about what is and is not acceptable will always remain with the school. Students are expected to adhere to the uniform rules on the journey to and from school.
