Sixth Form Uniform


Dress Code

How our staff and students dress is important to us. Our Sixth Formers should be the shining example of adult elegance and style – setting a prestigious example to the rest of the school. Our Sixth Formers understand the importance of how they present themselves and, as a result, are well placed to assist our staff in encouraging students lower down the school to dress smartly and maintain the high standards that have been set since we opened in 2012.

To this end, students, like members of staff, have to subscribe to a formal dress code which reflects their significant status in school.

All Sixth Formers:

  • Wear a lanyard at all times
  • Wear the Sixth Form specialist items from our uniform supplier, Smarty Pants, all marked below with an asterisk(*)
  • Wear an enamel Becket Keys badge
  • Wear other uniform as detailed below.

If students need advice at any point, they should speak with Mr Peggs or Mrs Course. It is better to ask in advance and avoid embarrassment!
