Sixth Form Dress Code 2023-2024


The dress code is in place to foster a sense of community and identity within the Townley Sixth Form. The formal dress code requirements ensure students have professional attire, preparing them for the future workplace but also instil a sense of pride for every individual and the wider Townley community. However, it still allows some capacity for expression and individuality and for students to take some ownership regarding their own professional representation. It is imperative that all students reflect the Townley values in both their behaviour and appearance, therefore acting as ambassadors within the school and beyond.
