Sixth Form Expectations

Being part of The Hart School Sixth Form means students become part of our community and role models for the lower school. As such, students are expected to comply with the school behaviour policy.  Students also need to represent themselves responsibly, aiming to try their best in all situations and to develop as successful young adults.

Below are the Sixth Form specific policies and codes of conduct that students will need to comply with as part of our community.

Sixth Form Dress Code

The aim of the Sixth Form Dress Code is to ensure that students project a personally distinctive and smart image, which will reflect their attitude to learning and the community values and high standards of the school as a whole.  Through the dress code, we aim to:

  • encourage pride in our school;
  • support teaching and learning and a positive work ethic;
  • enable all of our students to feel comfortable, safe and secure;
  • ensure that all students of different social, religious and ethnic groups feel welcome; and foster a sense of equality and community cohesion

It is therefore essential that students dress in a way that is suitable for our environment and are coordinated in both style and colour.  Extremes of fashion do not have a place in the school or workplace, although we are proud to support, and indeed encourage students to have their own identities, which includes the way they present themselves. 

It is for this reason that our Dress Code was created with and for students and allows considerable individuality.

Requests to vary the code for particular reasons, such as medical needs, will always be carefully considered.  See the Head of Sixth Form in the first instance or email .

ID – Badge

As part of Safeguarding, Sixth Form students MUST wear their ID badge and school lanyard around their neck, clearly on display, at all times.

Students must ensure they are signing in and out of school at the front office on our InVentry system.

Sixth Form Attendance

Planned Absence

For known absences that require you to miss Sixth Form – like unavoidable medical appointments, university open days / interviews, or apprenticeship interviews – you must inform the Head of Sixth Form and Attendance Team reception at least 48 hours in advance.

Unplanned Absence

Call school on the attendance Line to report your child’s absence between 07.30 and 08.30 am on the day of absence and on each subsequent day of absence advising school when they are expected to return.

Emergency Absence during the day

If a student is unwell enough to need to leave site during the school day, or if there is some other emergency need to leave, the student must communicate with School reception, and must NEVER leave site without a member of staff a) being aware, and b) gaining parent / carer consent for the student to leave during the day.
