Dress Code

Rationale

A smart dress code is reflective of the serious, academic ethos of the Southern Consortium sixth form and the high expectations of students. It illustrates a professional approach to sixth form study and the commitment of the students to their chosen courses.

Adhering to a dress code provides a bridge for students between the restrictions of a school uniform and the wider freedoms afforded to them at University. It also prepares them for the world of work where they will be expected to ‘conform’ to the dress code that is appropriate to their chosen field.

Finally, a smart, professional sixth form dress code, common to all four schools within the Southern Consortium, ensures that the same expectations are made of all students, and demonstrates to the wider local community the commitment of our students to their current and future success.

Exceptions include recommended kit for certain courses
