Sixth form Dress code

 

At Cromwell we expect our sixth form students to be smartly dressed at all times.

 

Our sixth form are student leaders in the school community. Their dress and appearance must therefore be appropriate to support and encourage the ethos of the school and the uniform and appearance policies in operation in Years 7 to 11.

We do not expect you to wear a uniform for school but we do expect you to follow this dress code: you are ambassadors for the college and you set the standards which aspiring learners in lower year groups will follow.

Post-16 students are required to wear their ID badge visibly at all times when in the college

Obvious piercings such as nose, eyebrow, tongue and other body piercings can be a health and safety hazard and are therefore not acceptable

Health & Safety requirements may dictate that there are specific subject regulations as regards jewellery, false nails etc.

(*) Sports Studies students can wear tracksuits for lessons, when appropriate.

If the dress code has been breached, we will follow the appropriate routes:

  • Tutors are responsible for the monitoring of the dress code so will highlight this to students in the first instance and inform parents if continual
  • Students may be asked to go home and change if no improvement
  • The Director of Post-16 Studies reserves the right to ask students who persistently do not adhere to the dress code to leave the College.
