Sixth Form Dress Code

CHESTERFIELD HIGH SCHOOL SIXTH FORM COLLEGE DRESS CODE

The students in Years 12 and 13 are role models for younger pupils and their standards of dress are an important part of the culture at Chesterfield High School. It is hoped that Sixth Form students will be proud of their professional appearance creating a positive image not just in school but also within the wider community. Furthermore this dress code will prepare the students for a potential future career where smart or formal attire is obligatory.

Students who choose not to adhere to the dress code outlined below will miss valuable lesson time.

Students:

  • Full length trousers or knee length skirts to be fitted to the waist or tailored suit dresses
