Dress Code

Coronavirus Closure

Cedars Martin Sixth Form does not have a college uniform.

Dress Code

Although Cedars Martin Sixth Form does not have a college uniform for students in the sixth form , our dress code places an important role in contributing to the ethos of the college and the wider school.

The dress code allows students to express themselves as individuals, but in an appropriate and modest way.

It is particularly important that the dress code recognises that the school is a working environment for students from the age of 11, and further that students are role models for the younger students and ambassadors for the school in the wider community.

Whilst students are given considerable freedom in determining how they dress to attend the college, the following items do not meet our expectations of dressing modestly;

  • Strapless, backless, or string-strapped tops
  • Clothing which is revealing; for example, exposing bare midriffs or bottoms
  • Caps or hats worn indoors, or any item which obscures the face
  • Clothing which reveals underwear
  • Clothing with offensive logos

All students are expected to arrive at college wearing clothing in accordance with these expectations.

Health and safety

At Cedars Martin Sixth Form we take our responsibility for the health and safety of our students very seriously and would therefore advise that the following guidelines are adhered to ;

  • Personal protective equipment is worn as directed by the Lionheart Academy Trust /Department for Education
  • Laboratory coats and safety glasses are worn in science laboratories/ classrooms as directed by teaching staff
  • Cedars Martin tracksuit and trainers / football boots are worn in Sports Studies
  • Large items of jewellery that could cause a health and safety risk , for example hooped earrings * and large nose rings are not permitted .Students must remove items of jewellery when requested to by staff
