Uniform

All learners at DBS up to Year 11 must wear school uniform. Wearing school uniform can help to achieve equality, reduce the potential for bullying and unite the school community. It is the strongly held view of the school that high standards of dress are important for establishing a purposeful learning environment and for demonstrating personal pride.

For female students this means: a skirt or smart trousers with a shirt or formal top.

Skirts must cover the knee when sitting and tops must cover shoulders. Shoes should be closed toe, formal and leather.

For male students this means: a shirt and tie with smart trousers. Shoes should be formal and leather.

As it is important that students dress smartly, the following are not permitted:

  • denim or jean style trouser/skirts
  • tight, low cut, sports or sleeveless t-shirts
  • shorts of any kind
  • cropped trousers
  • tight trousers
  • chinos

The above list represents a guideline to the meaning of 'office attire'. If in any doubt, the Head of Sixth Form should be consulted on the suitability of dress. Please note that the same dress code applies when students sit examinations.

If students do not follow the Sixth Form dress code they will be issued with a learning reminder from their Form Tutor/Teacher. After an initial reminder, if students fail to adhere to the dress code they will be referred to the Head of Sixth Form.
