Dress Code in the Sixth Form - (*UNTIL JULY 2017)

Members of the Sixth Form at George Spencer wear clothes of their own choice; this is a privilege which is granted to encourage independence of thought and action, to develop an understanding of appropriate choice in a given context and to allow some freedom of approach to develop a personal 'style'.

 

It can pose dilemmas, both for the individual and for the School; whether we like it or not, people are judged on appearance as well as conduct. Whilst students in the Sixth Form have the right to dress as individuals, they must appreciate their responsibility for the reputation of the School and for the setting of good examples to younger members of the community. They should not underestimate the part that appearance plays in personal and professional advancement.

 

In recent years there has been some confusion as to what is appropriate. With this in mind the 'Dress Code' was included in the handbook. It was felt that the most appropriate time to introduce this to students was at the beginning of the term when everyone would receive the same information.

 

Male Students:

  • Jeans, chinos and smart trousers are permitted. No rips, faded patches, frays or visible underwear.
  • Tailored shorts will be permitted at a defined date in the summer term
  • Smart collared shirt, polo shirt or t-shirt allowed (no offensive slogans or images)
  • A smart jumper, hoodie, sweatshirt or cardigan may be worn. (no offensive slogans or images)
  • Smart shoes, boots, trainers or plimsolls. For Health & Safety reasons, flip-flops should not be worn.

Female Students:

  • Jeans, chinos and smart trousers are permitted. No rips, faded patches, frays or visible underwear.
  • Tailored shorts will be permitted at a defined date in the summer term
  • Skirts of an appropriate length – nearer the knee than the hip!
  • A smart jumper, hoodie, sweatshirt or cardigan may be worn. (no offensive slogans or images)
  • Smart blouse, shirt or smart top which covers the shoulders and is not inappropriately revealing (no offensive slogans or images)
  • Smart shoes, boots, trainers or plimsolls allowed. No high heels, wedges or flip-flops for Health & Safety reasons.

 

* No outdoor clothing is to be worn inside (hats, gloves, scarves)

 

Students have been informed that should they arrive at the Sixth Form inappropriately dressed they will be asked to return home to change. Clearly we would prefer not to do this so we would appreciate your support in this matter. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me via email 6thforminfo@george-spencer.notts.sch.uk or call 01159170100.
