Uniform and Dress

On being awarded a place in the Sixth Form, students are provided with a Sixth Form Dress Code.

In The Priory Federation of Academies Trust, we aim to create a professional working environment.  As part of this approach we expect all members of the Sixth Form Community to wear clothing which supports this ethos.

The following advice will be of assistance to you:

For Male Students:  This means a suit/jacket with formal trousers, a shirt, a tie and formal shoes.  A formal jumper or waistcoat may be added under the jacket as long as the tie is clearly visible.  Items which are unacceptable are jeans style or denim trousers and trainers.  Top buttons should be fastened at all times.

For Female Students:  We recommend a suit with a shirt/formal blouse/formal jumper.  However smart skirts/ trousers/dresses with a formal jacket are equally acceptable.  Items you should avoid are ballet-style/soft leather shoes, brightly coloured footwear, sparkly footwear, overly strappy sandals, backless shoes/sandals, trainers, shoes with stiletto heels, informal t-shirts, tops with thin straps which expose the shoulders, strapless tops, exposed midriffs, split skirts, low necked tops, see-through blouses and skirts, jeans, jeans-style or denim trousers and jackets, overly casual or denim skirts, cropped trousers, hipster trousers, loose & wide belts, patterned tights.

There should be some care taken with jewellery. Our expectation is one pair of simple earrings in the lower lobe for female students and no earrings for male students. Necklaces, bracelets and rings may be worn but need to be in keeping with the formal nature of the dress code.

Extreme hairstyles for male and female students should be avoided.
