Dress Code

Harris Clapham Sixth Form is a place of learning and preparation for employment in a professional workplace. It is also, in itself, a professional workplace. Students and staff should wear clothes appropriate to such an environment. Our policy can be accessed from the bottom of this page. A summary is shown below:

Dress Code

Day to day general dress

Students and staff should wear clothes which project professionalism. Suits are the gold-standard for dressing for professional work. Shoes should be smart and appropriate to a professional workplace. Below will hopefully give students a clear summary.

Male business dress


  • Formal Business Suit
  • Formal shirt and tie
  • Formal shoes (you must be able to polish them)


Female business dress




  • Formal Business Suit (skirts must be at least to the knee, no stretchy lycra skirts allowed)
  • Formal Business Dress and jacket (Dress must have sleeves which cover at least the top
    quarter of the arm)
  • Formal Blouse or shirt
  • Formal shoes (you must be able to polish them)

Hair Cuts/Jewellery/Tattoos

  • Patterns or shapes cut into hair or eyebrows and brightly coloured hair – eg: Mohicans or tram lines are not allowed
  • Overly conspicuous jewellery - large earrings, necklaces are not allowed
  • Tattoos should not be visible. Visible body piercing is restricted to the ears and/or one small nose stud only. Bars, scaffolds and stretchers are not permitted. 

Formal occasions

Formal occasions and formal meetings with staff and any special events require more formal wear and students should wear a smart jacket or blazer. Students will be advised when an event is formal.

Inappropriate choice of dress

It is impossible to give an exhaustive list but:

Brightly coloured suits, sweatshirts, hoodies, chunky knitwear, leggings, tracksuits denim (jeans/top etc), T-shirts, vests, tank tops, crop tops and strappy tops are all incompatible with the professional appearance required at Harris Clapham Sixth Form as are trainers (including black leather trainers/kickers), canvas shoes and informal boots and shoes such as vans/pumps. As the Sixth Form is a learning environment, any garment that covers or significantly obscures the face is unacceptable.

Final judgement as to what is appropriate lies with the academy leadership group.

In the summer

Jackets can be removed during the academy day.

Staff responsibilities

Students will look to staff for examples of dressing professionally. Staff will also therefore dress professionally and be role models for our students.
