Post 16 Dress Code

In Post 16 it is essential that all students present themselves in a business-like manner.  You are representing the academy and setting standards and being role models for those students in lower year groups. 

Please find below the expectations for dress when you are a Post 16 student:

Jacket: Smart, formal office style. A fine knit jumper with a round, v or roll neck may be worn under the jacket but not instead of.

Tops: Blouse or shirt with sleeves to be worn under the jacket. No logos, narrow straps or low necklines. Sweatshirts are not appropriate.

Skirts / Dresses: Must come half way down the thigh when sitting. No body-con, denim, corduroy, leather, leather effect skirts / dresses, as these are not formal. Dark coloured opaque tights must also be worn.

Trousers: Formal office style and not clingy / stretchy fabric. No denim or corduroy.

Shoes: These should be appropriate for a work place. No canvas material or trainers.

Outdoor coats: Black, grey or navy with no large logos. Coats must be removed inside school.

Jewellery: A single small stud or sleeper may be worn in each ear. No facial / body piercing is acceptable. Any piercings should be done at the start of the summer holidays so that facial plasters or other ‘sleepers’ are unnecessary.

Hair and make-up: Hair and make-up should be appropriate for a work place and no extreme hair colours / styles are allowed.

Tattoos: Tattoos should not be visible.
