Sixth Form Uniform
The school adopted a Uniform Policy in 2023 which broadens the supplier choice for many elements of the uniform, to try to limit cost for parents and carers.
Sixth Formers are recognised as leaders within our school community and set an example for younger students. They recognise their status and responsibility and support and enhance our ethos through their appearance. The official school uniform must be worn correctly at all times in school, or when travelling to and from school, or to other venues.
It is a condition of being accepted into the Sixth Form that you agree to correctly wear the Sixth Form uniform . You set the tone for the whole school and we expect you to set high standards in personal appearance at all times. The emphasis is on professionalism and maturity i.e. smart, conventional appearance.
