What should I wear?

Year 12 and 13 Students

One of the questions we hear most often is what does business dress mean? To us, we would expect that you come to school in something that you would be comfortable to have a formal meeting with a business executive – basically dress for an interview and you will be spot on. A few guidelines below:

  • A skirt, dress or trouser suit suitable for a professional environment
  • No jeans, skinny jeans or wet look leggings. Leggings only to be worn underneath a dress
  • Tops/blouses/ shirts and ties suitable for a professional environment; low necked tops, t-shirts, vest tops and crop tops are not suitable
  • Words and diagrams on clothing should not be offensive or possibly be seen as offensive
  • Jumpers or cardigans should be plain; no hooded sweatshirts apart from in the fitness suite or during enrichment activities
  • Smart flat shoes or boots; trainers, open shoes and flip flops are not suitable
  • Hair and makeup should be of a style suitable for a professional environment; if hair is coloured it should be within the natural colour range
  • No facial piercings are allowed.
  • Outer coats and scarves to be removed whilst in the building
