Sixth Form Dress Code from September 2014


The sixth form dress code is ‘smart office wear’. We believe that this not only prepares you for your studies but also for life beyond school.

Hair and/or make up should be of a style suitable for a professional environment; if hair is coloured it should be within the natural colour range.

No facial piercings are allowed. Ear piercings are allowed in line with the whole school policy of one stud or sleeper earring per ear. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that it is illegal for a young person under 18 to be tattooed. Where a young person does have a tattoo it must be covered.

Below are the rules on the style of dress for Bushey Meads Sixth Form.
