The Ursuline Sixth Form Dress Code is a document that is signed by all students wishing to join our Sixth Form which indicates their agreement to conform to the code listed below and as such, we expect full compliance.
Students are reminded that the Sixth Form is a place of work and are requested to dress appropriately. Any student found not to be dressed appropriately will be spoken to and expected to go home to change or have their parent/ carer bring appropriate attire into school urgently. We will hold a supply of basic black trousers and skirts, and white shirts which students will be expected to change into if they infringe the dress code and are unable to go home to change or have their parent/ carer come in with appropriate clothing.
These smart clothes will also be available for those students who face financial difficulties and who cannot purchase smart business wear for Fridays. If you require financial support to purchase appropriate clothing, please speak confidentially to Mr Joyce, Mrs Hall, Mrs Crompton or Mrs Billings who can discuss Sixth Form Bursary with you.
Persistent misconduct and severe breaches of the Dress Code will result in the student being placed in Reflection and parents/carers being required to attend a meeting with Mr Joyce/ Mrs Billings to discuss next steps.
On enrolment to Sixth Form, all students will be provided with a lanyard that they must wear at all times when on school site. This is crucial for safeguarding and their lanyard will also allow students to sign in and out.
