Bablake Sixth Form Boys’ Dress Code

Sixth Form Boys’
Dress Code
Whilst the regulations for the Sixth Form allow for some variation in dress, the aim should be
to combine clothes that give a SMART BUSINESS-LIKE APPEARANCE and which are
appropriate for a working environment. To avoid unnecessary expense students should seek
advice on any item of dress if they are unsure of its suitability. Jackets must be worn at
all times, to and from school and in school, unless directed by the Headmaster.
The Headmaster reserves the right in his absolute discretion to refuse entry to the School to
any student failing to observe any of these dress regulations, and to rule on the acceptability of
variations not covered by the regulations. Any questions regarding variations for religious reasons
should be directed to the Headmaster.
Students who disregard the regulations will, after warning, be sent home.
