We hope that this dress code reflects our wish to offer you a more adult image which

  • makes a clear distinction between you and our 11-16 pupils 
  • is smart but comfortable
  • allows for a greater degree of flexibility
  • gives you the ease and equality of uniform garments
  • is not too expensive for you and your parents.
As role models and young leaders of our 11-16 pupils, our Sixth Form students will be expected to have high standards, in work ethic, behaviour and appearance.
