ID Badges

Sixth Form students are issued with ID badges at the start of the course.  These must be worn at all times.  Students will be sent home to collect badges if they are forgotten.

Leaving the School Site

Year 12 are allowed to leave the site at 12.40 pm after afternoon registration whilst Year 13 only have to be in school when they have lessons, unless other arrangements are made at the discretion of the sixth form team. Sixth form are not allowed to leave the school site during break time. All students must swipe their card whenever entering or leaving the building. This is essential for health and safety reasons.

Dress Code

Whilst we do not have a uniform in the Sixth Form, we do expect students to adhere to our Dress Code.  The Dress Code reflects our working and learning environment and also that Sixth Form students are role models for the rest of the school who are in uniform.

Very short skirts and shorts/skorts, ripped jeans and tracksuits are not permitted and low cut tops are not allowed. Midriffs, shoulders and underwear should be covered
Leggings/jeggings are only permitted if worn with a dress or long tunic
T-shirts with obscene images, slogans or messages are not permitted
Hats and caps are not permitted
Sliders and flip flops are not permitted
PE students can wear plain black tracksuit bottoms or black shorts and a plain black t shirt or sweatshirt on days when they have practical lessons

The above is a guide; students not dressed appropriately will be sent home to change at the discretion of the Head of Sixth Form or senior leadership team.
