Folkestone Academy Sixth Form Uniform

Sixth Form Uniform

The purpose of the Sixth Form Dress Code is to ensure students attend lessons in smart business clothing which would be acceptable in a traditional workplace, whilst allowing some freedom and flexibility to express their own personality. Students who attend in clothing which is deemed by the Sixth Form staff to be unacceptable will be asked to change even if this necessitates a journey home.
