The Priory Academy LSST Sixth Form Dress Code 2023-24

One of the core values at The Priory Academy LSST is Aspiration. We instil an attitude of hard work and determination in our students and this is reflected in our business style dress code. We want to prepare our students for work, present them as role models for lower school and as ambassadors within the wider academy community. 

Parents/carers support their children when they choose to attend The Priory Academy LSST in the full knowledge of what our dress code requires of Sixth Form students. If students fall below our expected standards repeatedly, they may be asked to return home to change.

The student lanyard should be worn at all times for safeguarding those on site.

All students should wear a two piece business style outfit that can consist of:

  • Jacket and skirt
  • Jacket and dress
  • Jacket and tailored trousers

Where a skirt or dress is worn this should be of an appropriate length for a work environment.

Where a tailored shirt is worn this should be tucked in and worn with a tie.

When a tailored shirt is not worn a smart top should be worn.

Formal jumpers may be worn under a jacket but should be of a V neck or crew neck style. Zip style jumpers, sweatshirts/hoodies or jumpers with logos are not permitted. Chunky jumpers that cannot be worn under a jacket are also not permitted.

Shoes or boots should cover the foot at the front and back and should not be in the style of ‘Doc Martens’. Boots may be worn with a skirt or dress as well as with trousers as long as they are of a formal work style.

Hairstyles should be in accordance with smart business dress – any dye should be of a natural colour.

The Academy is responsible for ensuring that jewellery worn does not pose a risk to those on site.  There should be a maximum of three piercings in either ear and there should be no facial piercings. Hooped earrings should be no larger than 2cm in diameter.

If there is any debate about an item of clothing the Head teacher’s decision is final.
