BOURNE ACADEMY SIXTH FORM
Sixth Form Dress Code
Our students do not have uniform in Sixth Form, but instead we have a dress code which is similar to what is expected in a professional business environment.
The way that students dress is important to create a smart, disciplined and purposeful academic environment and as role models to promote the public image of Bourne Academy in the wider community.
Students whose clothing is not deemed suitable will spend the day in the Student Referral Unit.
