Dress Code

Highworth is the place of work for Sixth Form students and, as such, students are expected to dress appropriately for work. Our smart/casual and gender neutral dress code aims to foster a relaxed, yet focused, learning environment. 

The following rules must be adhered to:

  • Hair is one natural colour
  • Clothing should ensure that midriffs are covered
  • Skirts and dresses should be at least mid-thigh length
  • Ear piercings are permitted
  • During the Summer Term, it is permissible to wear smart, chino-style shorts of at least mid-thigh length
  • Hats and coats must be removed once inside the school building.
  • Clothing must ensure that underwear is not visible

The items below are prohibited:

  • Torn clothing, including ripped jeans
  • Flip flops
  • Visible tattoos or piercings other than ear piercings
  • T-shirts with offensive slogans
  • Strapless tops.

Anyone contravening the dress code will be asked to go home to change. If clarification is required about a particular item of clothing, students can speak to Mr House or Mrs Morton before wearing it to school. The Head of Sixth Form has the final say on issues of dress and appearance. Students are encouraged to remember that the Sixth Form are role models in the school community and set the tone and standard for the rest of the student body.
