our sixth form has a dress code - no trainers or jeans i think.
We get to wear our own clothes - a little bit of a hassle since I have to pester the parents for money! It's good though, makes you feel a bit more grown up compared to the rest of the school. There's no real dress code - just now showing too much boobs and midriff
Im not in 6th form but no uniform when I go. I'd rather wear uniform, tbh.
I'm at a 6th form where we have a dress code. Guys have to basically wear suits while the girls get away with wearing almost anything aside from jeans and trainers. I suppose it is good because the school looks quite smart but you look mature as well, and the is a lot of room for individuality. The only downside is that now I've got so many shirts and ties that I'm running out of space in my wardrobe
Woo 1st post on TRS! lol.
Its a suit for me in 6th form. Same for the girlies.. spose i gotta agree with the general consensus on here that a uniform/dress code does keep the mornings simple & looking smart is alright.
I don't have to wear a uniform, and its actually pretty cool at our school 'cos everyone does tend to dress differently and so no1 really sticks out that much its kewl!
We have a dress code, which basically means we have to wear either black or navy. It's a little bit stricter than that in the sense we have to wear collared tops, etc. but, on the whole, it's fine. It's nice not to have to worry as much about what to wear every day.
No, your wrong there, it's not trying to impress anyone at all...the whole point of a uniform is not to suppress a student's own personality, its to stop stereotyping of others, it stops people trying to compete with others on fashion and it provides simplicity (as people said, what to wear in the morning!). It also makes students feel part of a larger body, improves the sense of identity with your school/college.
I'm personally glad I have a uniform, for our sixth form we wear light blue shirts instead of white but keep the same trousers/shoe rules etc etc.
We have to wear pretty much the same uniform as the rest of the school, apart from a different 6th Form tie and we are allowed to wear a plain coloured shirt, as opposed to the white ones that the rest of the school wear.
