Sixth Form Uniform

In The Priory Federation of Academies Trust, we aim to create a purposeful working environment.  The Sixth Form is a place of work and we should dress accordingly.  As part of this approach we expect all members of the Sixth Form Community to wear clothing which supports this ethos. This is a traditional uniform policy and it is this way in order to prepare students for the rigours and traditions of working life and as such the emphasis is on a smart appearance.

The following advice will be of assistance to students:

Male students are expected to wear a traditional suit with matching jacket and trousers, a shirt, a tie and plain, dark-coloured leather shoes.   A smart jumper or waistcoat may be added under the jacket as long as the tie is clearly visible.  Top buttons should be fastened at all times.  Sleeves on shirts can be long or short, but long sleeve shirts may not be rolled up. 

Female students are expected to wear a traditional suit with matching jacket and skirt/dress/trousers with an appropriate shirt/blouse/smart jumper (no T-shirts or polo shirts).  Any skirt must be within 4 cm of the knee.  Dark-coloured, plain, leather, low heeled or flat shoes should be worn to suit business attire. When considering whether to wear make-up, it must be suitable for attending a place of work or a job interview.
