Although there is no uniform requirement for Sixth Form students and you may wear clothes of your own choosing, it is crucial that you understand that clothing should be suitable for the working environment and must not interfere with your core aim of learning and achieving.

It is our expectation that all Sixth Form students will act as role models to our younger students, as ambassadors to the community, locally and nationally and to dress accordingly. To this end, clothing which could cause offence to others (by wording, imagery or being too revealing) is not permitted.

The following are also not permitted:

  • Hats (except outdoors in cold weather).
  • Miniskirts, short shorts (no more than 6” from the bottom of the knee).
  • Cropped or strappy tops (must have sleeves – short or long)
  • Tops which expose the abdomen are not acceptable
  • Ripped jeans or any other fabric.
  • ‘Beachwear’ including Bermuda-style shorts and flip flops/bare feet.
  • Excessive piercings and/or unnatural hair colour/styles are not permitted.

Coats and outdoor wear should be removed promptly at the start of lessons and when in Frome Futures.

In certain subjects, there may be additional clothing guidelines for health and safety reasons and students should follow the expectations of that department e.g. science: any footwear that does not cover the whole foot, shorts, etc.

The judgement of the Sixth Form Team will be final.
