Sedgehill Academy Sixth Form Handbook

Our mission for every student who studies at Sedgehill Sixth Form is to leave as a strong, independent learner who is confident and well prepared to face the demands of the competitive world ahead of them.

We want every student to aspire to achieve beyond expectations and leave with the necessary skills to succeed in the next stage of their career, be that university, an apprenticeship or employment.  Creating an environment where this can be achieved is our primary goal.

    Sixth Form Dress Code

    Our mission for every student who studies at Sedgehill Sixth Form is to leave as a strong, independent learner who is confident and well prepared to face the demands of the competitive world ahead of them.

    We want every student to aspire to achieve beyond expectations and leave with the necessary skills to succeed in the next stage of their career, be that university, an apprenticeship or employment.  Creating an environment where this can be achieved is our primary goal.

    As such, our dress code reflects the expectations of a formal working environment, where students take a responsible and mature attitude toward achieving their goals. Our Sixth Formers are also role models to the lower school and standards of dress are an important part of the demonstrating this.

    Please see detailed below the Sedgehill Sixth Form Uniform Policy which students are expected to adhere to whilst in school.
