Sixth Form Dress Code
The way that students in Sixth Form dress is important to create a smart, disciplined and purposeful academic environment and to promote the public image of Bourne Academy. As a student in a school where the younger pupils wear a strict uniform, Sixth Form students set an example by adhering to our dress code which is similar to that expected in a professional business environment.
