Sixth form Dress Code 2020/2021

Sixth Form students must recognise their responsibility in acting as ambassadors of North Chadderton and as positive role models at all times, including in the area of school dress.  At North Chadderton, we expect all students to be smart and well-presented and to this end, we have adopted a Business Dress Code for Post-16 students which promotes a smart, positive and business-like image and reflects the high standards of presentation in younger year groups. 


BUSINESS DRESS – Monday-Thursdays


Boys’ Dress Code

  • Suit with a smart shirt and tie.
  • Smart shoes. Trainers are not allowed.
  • Visible tattoos are not allowed.


Girls’ Dress Code

  • Suit consisting of a jacket and skirt, jacket and dress or jacket and trousers.
  • Skirts should be of a suitable length and must be appropriate for a business environment.
  • A blouse or top of any colour may be worn and must be appropriate for a business environment.
  • Smart shoes should be worn.
  • Visible tattoos are not allowed.


Friday – Own clothes

Own clothes may be worn on Fridays to reflect practice in many large businesses in our country and indeed, world-wide.

The aim is to have a smart appearance that allows a degree of personal choice. However, your college is a workplace and a learning environment and your appearance should reflect that.


No short skirts, sleeveless and see-through tops allowed. Tops that expose the abdomen are unacceptable as are strapless, backless or strappy vest tops.


In the event of extreme weather conditions, this dress code may be subject to change at the discretion of the Assistant Director KS5 and/or Senior Director Standards and Effectiveness KS5.
