St Anthony’s & St Aidan’s Sixth Form expects students to adhere to a dress code.

We believe it helps create a feeling of unity among students and strengthens their sense of belonging to the sixth form community. In many areas of employment a uniform or dress code is an asset to both the individual and the organisation.
