Sixth Form Dress Code


The Hamstead Hall Academy dress code is in place for Sixth Form students to foster a sense of community and identity. The formal dress code requirements ensure students have professional attire, preparing students for future workplace and to instil a sense of pride of being a part of Hamstead Hall Academy.
The dress code allows some capacity for expression and individuality and for students to take some ownership regarding their own professional representation. It is imperative that all students reflect Hamstead Hall values in ethos in both their behaviour and appearance. This is imperative as Sixth Form students act as role models for our KS3 and KS4 students.
Students not adhering to the dress code nor wearing a lanyard will be given a warning and then a detention if the issue is not rectified. Continued failure to comply with the dress code will be treated as defiance and refereed to the behaviour policy will be followed.
The Sixth Form team makes the final decision on what is suitable dress code.
