Piercings & Hair Colour:

Whilst body piercing is not unacceptable in Sixth Form, it should not be excessive and you need to consider that you are in a work environment. Hair colour and style should also reflect the work environment of the Sixth Form.

Students completing practical subjects:

There are certain subjects that require students to wear alternative clothing e.g. Dance, Drama etc. If you have other lessons during the day you will need to bring a change of clothes. You will be expected to attend all of your other lessons in smart work wear as outlined above.

ANY STUDENT WHO ARRIVES FOR SCHOOL INAPPROPRIATELY DRESSED WILL BE SENT HOME TO CHANGE. ANY TIME MISSED FROM LESSONS WILL BE MADE UP IN OWN TIME.
