Sixth Form Dress Code

The Sixth Form Dress Code is compulsory for all members of the Sixth Form. The dress code has been devised to create an appropriate balance between smartness and the need to express individual style.  As the most senior students in the school, we insist on high standards of appearance and for students to be easily recognised within, and beyond, our school community.

This dress code is NOT optional

The following points provide guidance on what will and will not be acceptable: 


School Crested Blazer available from Monkhouse School wear Specialists, Gloucester

Grey, Navy or black skirt, trousers or dress

Skirts/dresses must be of an appropriate business style and knee length or longer

Plain coloured buttoned shirt with collar, short or full-length sleeve. 
Top buttons must be fastened and shirt tucked into trousers OR predominately white top or blouse which must not be low-cut, exposing shoulders or reveal midriff.  Full length or ¾ length sleeve

Ties are to be worn and must be appropriate to a school setting

Plain non-patterned jumper or cardigan may be worn, but cannot replace the school blazer

School/office shoes – smart leather or leather-like material.

The following items ARE NOT allowed:

Applying to all:

Hoodies, leather clothing, denim including jean-style trousers, leggings, shorts, playsuits, polo shirts, polo-necked jumpers, designer logos, trainers, deck shoes, flip flops, ‘Ugg’ style boots.

Visible tattoos, ear stretchers.

Extreme hair styles, including unnatural hair colours e.g. pink / blue / purple are not permitted.

For some practical subjects such as Sport or Drama, teachers may wish you to wear a different set of clothes.   This is at the discretion of your teacher and will only be allowed during that lesson and not before or after.

If a student’s appearance is not acceptable the student will:

  • Receive a warning and/or be placed on the sixth form Student Support Plan. Full details available on the school website
  • Contact made with home
