In the Sixth Form, we recognise the independence and growing maturity of our students as they progress to the world of work and adult life. Our Sixth Form students are role models for the Virgo Fidelis community and young women who take pride in themselves and in their school. As such we expect high standards of commitment, conduct and appearance from all our Sixth Form students and we work rigorously to maintain these standards. Our aim is to reflect the expectations of a professional workplace.
It is the responsibility of all students to comply with our dress code which is:
Business Dress. No Jeans. Smart trousers or skirt with a smart top and preferably a jacket.
A smart jumper or cardigan (optional), without a hood, that may be worn under the jacket but not instead of the jacket.
Shoes which are suitable to wear with a suit, and not canvas or trainers.
Please note that:
Jewellery, make-up, hair colour and styles must be kept to a discreet level; body piercing, apart from ears, is unacceptable.
Students wishing to wear Islamic dress must wear a simple plain black hijab and or jilbab.
Any student arriving in school dressed inappropriately can expect parents/guardian to be notified and may be asked to return home to change. The dress code applies to journeys to and from school, as well as at school, and at all school functions.
Please note that outdoor jackets, coats or hats may not be worn during the school day.
