Sixth Form Dress Code

Please remember that Torquay Girls’ Grammar School is a place of work, and all Sixth Form students must abide by a simple dress code so that they present not only a mature and professional image to the lower school students, but also to members of the public.

We encourage students to develop their identity and therefore do not have a set uniform, however, we do ask students to observe a code, which seeks to ensure that they avoid extremes of fashion, are dressed smartly, appropriately and safely for a place of work.

The Sixth Form Dress Code – All students are required to wear:

  • A smart tailored, plain black jacket or blazer (no denim or leather)
  • A white or cream plain blouse, shirt or jumper
  • Black trousers or a black knee-length skirt.
  • A smart knee-length plain black dress suitable for a place of work is acceptable.
  • Smart black or brown shoes

Students are not allowed to wear

  • Short skirts
  • Black jeggings or leggings
  • Strappy tops which expose shoulders
  • T shirts with pictures and slogans
  • Flip flops or trainers
  • Hair dyed an extreme colour

Discreet ear and nose piercings are acceptable in sixth form; however, please be aware that staff may challenge students and ask them to remove facial jewellery if it is deemed too excessive.

The Sixth Form Dress Code should be followed from Monday to Thursday.  However, on Fridays there will be a relaxation of the code.  Students will be allowed to wear mufti each Friday, and once a month we will ask for a contribution of £1 for this privilege.  Each term we will ask the students to vote for a charity and all monies collected will be donated to the nominated charities. Please be aware that mufti should be appropriate to a school setting/working environment. Students who do not follow the code Monday to Thursday will not be allowed to participate in the relaxation of the dress code on Fridays.

EVERY DAY IS OPEN DAY...Call us on 01803 653756 to arrange a tour or email us:
