Conduct and Dress Code

CONDUCT AND DRESS CODE

As a member of the Sacred Heart Sixth Form all students will be expected to become role models for the rest of the school. Sixth Formers will be expected to act as if they were working in a professional business environment. Attendance and punctuality must be exemplary.        

Sixth Form students will be expected to wear a plain black or dark grey business suit. Boys will need a plain shirt and a tie of their choice. Girls will be allowed to wear a plain blouse with collar. Shoes should be sensible and have a heel under 5cm.

All Sixth Form students must uphold the rules and the ethos of Sacred Heart Catholic School at all times. The school retains the right to withdraw a student’s place if they do not comply with our expectations.

Sacred Heart is one of the highest performing secondary schools in the country for exam results. We are determined to ensure that from the outset, standards and expectation levels will be extremely high in our Sixth Form.
