Sixth Form College Dress Code


As stated in the full Sixth Form Prospectus, the high standards of appearance expected across the College continue into the Sixth Form. Whilst no longer required to wear the distinctive uniform of the main College, students are expected to dress in accordance with the Sixth Form Dress Code established though consultation with students, staff, parents and governors. We hope that students will be proud of their dress code and comfortable wearing it.

The black College jacket has been chosen to reflect the maturity of the Sixth Form students and is not a traditional school blazer. The jacket must be purchased from The Big Wight T-Shirt Company who have ensured the quality and value for money of the item. Jackets are not embroidered with the College logo to ensure that they can be used outside of the College for employment/University interviews or other such occasions. Students will be provided with a Christ the King College pin badge which should be worn on the jacket whilst in College. Students should wear their jacket to and from College.  
 
Formal Occasions 
On certain occasions, students will be asked to wear formal Sixth Form attire. This must comprise dark trousers/skirt and a white shirt or blouse, the College Sixth Form tie or scarf and the black College jacket with pin badge. Students will always receive 24 hours’ notice of this requirement and are advised that formal dress will be required whenever representing the Sixth Form, for example at competitions, performances and all other formal events. The College scarf (female) and tie (male) should be purchased from the Big Wight T-Shirt Company.

General 
If students choose to wear make-up, it is expected that this will be natural and discrete. Jewellery must be kept to a minimum (facial piercings are not acceptable) and hair styles/colours should not be extreme. Skirts should be no shorter than 3” above the knee. 
 
Sports
If students have chosen a PE / Sport related course, they will be expected to follow the normal dress code to and from College. Sportswear should be brought with them and only changed into in College for their Sport related lessons. A College polo-shirt and hooded sweatshirt have been chosen specifically for the Sixth Form and are available to purchase from Big Wight T-Shirt. These items can be personalised with the course name and students’ initials. Black/navy shorts or tracksuit pants and white trainers should be worn.
