Students are reminded that the Sixth Form is a place of work and are requested to dress appropriately.  We feel that our guidelines are quite relaxed and as such foresee no difficulty in compliance. Any student found not to be dressed accordingly will be spoken to and expected to be appropriately dressed the next day. Persistent misconduct will result in the student being placed in inclusion and parents/carers being asked to attend a meeting with Mrs D’Costa or Mrs Dunne.

  • Jeans or trousers.
  • Leggings may be worn but must be appropriate.
  • Tracksuit bottoms should only be worn during practical sport lessons. (Students must change immediately prior to and after their sport lesson.)
  • Skirts, shorts and dresses must be an appropriate length (not above mid thigh).
  • Tops should be suitable for the school environment. See through, cropped or backless or strapless tops are not permitted. Vest tops should not have “shoe string” straps.
  • No vests/sleeveless tops are permitted
  • Jackets, jumpers, cardigans or hooded sweatshirts may be worn.
  • No clothing with offensive wording or logos.
  • Hats should not be worn during lesson/study time.
  • Jewellery should be suitable for a working environment. A nose stud may be worn if it is a small stud only. No other facial piercings are permitted.
  • When playing sport or in Science labs, suitable footwear must be worn.

 This list is intended as a guideline but is not exhaustive; if a member of the sixth form team feels a student is dressed inappropriately for a place of education, they will be asked to change.

 Formal Occasions. There will be some occasions where students will be required to wear smart dress, for example Cathedral Mass, open evenings and presentation evening. Smart dress will be required with suits comprising of trousers / skirt and jacket with blouse/shirt for all students.
