Sixth Form Dress Code
As recognition of the Sixth Form student's growing maturity and independence the Sixth Form dress code is based upon business principles. BCS believes that a smart dress code will promote fairness and equality for all sixth form students as well as giving you an adult image. Additionally we believe the dress code strikes a balance between some degree of individuality whilst recognising the importance of setting an example to the younger members of the School community, parents, prospective employers and admissions tutors and visitors to the school. The Sixth Form dress code encourages smart, stylish dress, which expresses our students' self-confidence, pride and sense of the standards expected in business and professional work places.
Dress down day will be reviewed prior to Easter.
