Sixth Form Dress Code
Sixth Form students at Verulam are expected to be role models for the rest of the school. The dress code has been designed to promote inclusivity, as well as professionalism. We encourage all students to exercise good judgement.
The following outlines the expectations of all Sixth Form students when attending lessons at Verulam.
- Ensure they are wearing smart, professional attire, which includes suits, trousers, dresses or appropriate skirts, collared shirts, ties, blouses, tailored shorts, sweaters and cultural or religious dress.
- Not wear inappropriate attire (both clothing and footwear) – sportswear, beachwear, jeans or unkempt clothing and shoes.
- Not wear anything that could offend others or make them feel uncomfortable. This includes clothing with profanity, hate speech, or exclusionary language. Likewise, midriffs should not be exposed, nor should any transparent fabrics be worn.
- Show common sense and professionalism in their clothing choices.
- Only wear Sixth Form Leavers’ Hoodies from the end of the spring term in Year 13.
- Remove outdoor coats once inside the school building.
- Bring in appropriate clothing to change into for any practical lessons.
- Wear their lanyards at all times when on sight to ensure the safeguarding of all students.
Any issues with 6th Form dress will be referred to the KS5 Leadership Team who will make final decisions regarding dress or the need to change.
