2023 Cohort - Uniform and Dress Code

The Priory Lincoln Sixth Form Dress Code.

One of the key roles within the Sixth Form is the preparation for the world of work. We want to prepare our students for work as well as presenting them as role models for lower school and as ambassadors within the wider academy community. 

Parents/carers support their children when they choose to attend The Priory Lincoln Academy with the full knowledge of what our dress code requires of Sixth Form students. If students fall below our expected standards, they may be asked to return home to change.

The student lanyard should be worn at all times for safeguarding those on site.

Students should wear a uniform that can consist of:

  • Jacket and skirt
  • Jacket and dress
  • Jacket and tailored trousers

Where a skirt or dress is worn this should not be of jersey, bodycon or stretch style – skirts and dresses should be smart. Skirts should be worn 2/3 down the upper leg.

Where a tailored shirt is worn this should be tucked in and worn with a tie.

When a tailored shirt is not worn a smart top should be worn. Tops that are not smart and are not in line with the Sixth Form Dress Code include.

  • Sweatshirts
  • Tops with logos
  • Tops that are revealing (midrifts etc).

Shoes or boots should cover the foot at the front and back. Trainers should not be worn.

There will be occasions where students are asked to wear subject specific clothing (Sports & Hospitality and Catering), this is perfectly acceptable to be worn throughout the Academy day.

Hairstyles should be in accordance with smart business dress – any dye should be of a natural colour.

The Academy is responsible for ensuring that jewellery worn does not pose a risk to those on site.  There should be a maximum of three piercings in either ear and if a student has a nose piercing it should be a plain stud.

Mobile phone policy

Phones should only be used in Sixth Form Rotunda/Common Room

If there is any debate about an item of clothing the Headteacher’s decision is final.
