    My school is part of a consortium of three schools, so in order to be able to do all of my first choice subjects for IB, I have to mvoe aorund to all of them... one of them is an all boys school which accepts girls into sixth form. This school has a very clear strict dress code for the boys (suits) but just asks the girls to dress appropriately, and with no jeans...

    well, I'm kinda confused because I've never seen any of the girls who go their either ufll time or for only a few subjects walking around in female suits... On the sxith form conference, a the girls showing us around were really casual in just jeans and stuff.... so I'm kind of confused...

    my brother goes there full time, so I asked him, but he was just absolutely useless. he doesn't have a clue about clothes at all and told me to just wear whatever minus the jeans... aksing him what to wear instead..."dunno"

    what should i wear? is anyone else in this position/similar...?

    lol this is kinda a long post just aksing what to wear, but I do tend to go on a bit...

    At my school, which accepts girls for VIth form, but is a boys school all the way from 13-18, there is a reasonably strict dress code for boys (e.g. we must all wear the same jacket, trousers, shoes must be black or brown brogues) with a few personalisations (e.g. Prefects can wear any colour jumper, Upper School can wear Green/Pink (school colour...)/Blue jumpers, Lower school must wear Black jumpers), whereas the Girls have comparably lenient regulations like "Girls may wear suits, or a black/white/pink/blue shirt with dark trousers or dark below knee-length skirt.". So I'd imagine, just to be on the safe side, wear a suit. It's quite common for girls to have relaxed dress regulations, whilst boys are still expected to be identically dressed...

    The College I went to had a suits rule for both sexes, but girls could get away with wearing all sorts of things - dodgy trousers, dodgy shoes, dodgy tops, whilst it was basically impossible for the blokes.

    Seeing as you live in St Albans, i can only think of either the Harpenden Consortium between St Georges, Roundwood and Sir John Lawes or the Sandringham one with the other 2 schools I keep forgetting the names of lol. Though the last time I checked, non of the Harps schools are 'boys' schools which only accept girls for sixth form and the IB is rare, so i assume you're with the other consortium, in which case, it's only necessary to dress neatly and to look smart. Just wear a suit or something, but you don't have to, you can wear a jumper or something or anything as long as it's neat... so no jeans or anything out of the ordinary.

    My school on girl's dress:

    Girls wear a tailored jacket and tailored skirt (which may be a suit) with blouse or jumper.
    Skirts must be no shorter than mid-thigh length. Trousers are acceptable only as part of a
    tailored suit - jeans, chinos, stretch pants or similar are not acceptable. Jumpers must not
    be longer than the jacket. A dress may be substituted for the skirt and blouse. Footwear
    must be smart. Very pointed toes and stiletto heels are not permitted for reasons of safety.
    Provisions with regard to colour apply equally to both sexes. The opportunity for members
    of the Sixth Form to exercise a measure of personal choice in their dress is to be regarded
    not as a right, but as a privilege and concession, and will be withdrawn from those who
    abuse it.

    If you're comfortable with it, just wear a suit. Otherwise, I'd imagine a smart top, smart trousers/reasonable length skirt and smart shoes would be fine.
