This is a general overview of appropriate business dress and neither list should be considered exhaustive; the lists tell you what is generally acceptable as business dress and what is generally not acceptable as business dress.

No dress code can cover all contingencies so students must exert a certain amount of judgement in their choice of clothing to wear to sixth form. If you experience uncertainty about acceptable, business dress for sixth form, please ask your tutor for guidance.

If you are inappropriately dressed you will be asked to return home to change.
