Post-16 Dress Code
Post 16 students are expected to set an example to the rest of the school through their high standard of business-like dress and the way they present themselves.
The intention of the Post 16 dress code is to maintain the smart appearance of the lower school years. A sixth former should be able to leave the school site and immediately attend a formal interview without having to change their appearance.
The Post 16 dress code is smart office wear and the requirements are as follows:
- Tailored jacket and tailored trousers or tailored skirt or dress (skirt or dress should be no more than 5cm above the knee)
- Boys should wear a shirt with a tie (with top button done up)
- Girls should wear a fitted shirt or smart top without logos. Shirts and blouses must cover the midriff. Vest tops, low cut tops or tops that reveal midriffs are not suitable.
- Smart shoes (not trainers or other casual shoes)
Any headwear relating to religious observance is allowed e.g. Hijab for Muslim girls.
- Hooded tops are not to be worn at any time
- No extremes of hairstyles or colour
- No excessive facial piercings allowed
- A jacket must be worn when walking around school, as well as for assemblies and other formal occasions. Teachers may give students permission to remove their jackets in lessons
- Outdoor coats must be removed in class and assemblies
- For practical lessons, students may need to bring in appropriate clothing to change into for that lesson.
Stanborough School reserves the right to arbitrate on whether an outfit/item of clothing is appropriate and in keeping with the premise of smart business wear. Any student who breaches the school dress code can expect to be sent home to change. Students will be issued with a Saturday Detention for repeated offences.
Students from Consortium Schools should respect the Stanborough Dress Code.
