Sixth Form Dress Code

Dress For Business

We feel that all our students should be professional in their approach to Sixth Form and being “business smart” is an important step in ensuring that the students feel prepared for their day of work. We believe that the code will create a purposeful work ethos and positive atmosphere, whilst setting a good example to the younger students.
