LCS 6th Form: Information for Students

This page details information relevant to LCS sixth form pupils.

Attendance

We expect 95% + attendance from every student.

We also expect students to be punctual to registration and to lessons.

This level of attendance is necessary to ensure students achieve their full potential in their AS and A levels

Absence Notification

If you know you are going to be absent, you must hand in a notification form at least 2 days in advance.

Dress Code

When you enrol you will receive your copy of the LCS Sixth Form contract, which you will need to read carefully, sign and return in September. In the meantime we think the following information will help all of us to make a smooth start.

Students in Sixth Form should be seen as role models for younger pupils in school and ambassadors within the community and therefore it is important that they present themselves well.  We expect students to follow the principles of “smart business dress” when in school. We expect male students to wear a tie at all times.

Male Students

Male students can wear a matching black, grey or blue formal suit, a plain shirt and a tie which must be worn at all times, with smart shoes. A V- neck jumper may be worn in place of a suit jacket but must be a plain coloured jumper (e.g. dark blue, grey, black, dark red, dark green NOT patterned or bright coloured).

Female Students

Female students can wear a matching black, grey or blue formal suit which can be either trousers, or a skirt which is at least knee length. A plain shirt must be worn which must have a full collar, buttons and sleeves (short or long) but must not be see-through or have additional accessories on it (e.g. studs etc). A V- neck jumper may be worn in place of a suit jacket but must be a plain coloured jumper (e.g. dark blue, grey, black, dark red, dark green NOT patterned or bright coloured). Shoes must be smart and sensible without high heels or stilettos

The following items WOULD NOT be considered to fit in with the principles of “smart business dress”:
  

  • Baggy, loose knit jumpers/cardigans, sweatshirts or hoodies
  • Jeans/denim or leather clothing
  • T shirts/Polo shirts/strappy tops
  • Sheer/See through blouses (unless a camisole style top is worn underneath)
  • Leggings and tight fitting trousers
  • Short skirts/Dresses (skirts should be close to knee length)
  • Facial Piercings
  • Trainers/Canvas shoes/pumps
  • Doc Marten style /Ugg boots
  • Unnaturally coloured hair or patterned/extreme hair styles

This is not a definitive list of items that are not permitted but it is designed to give guidance to students.

The final decision on what is and is not deemed smart will lie with MrD’Elia, Mrs Cowie and Mr Archer. Students who are not thought to be dressed appropriately may be sent home to change.

Post-16 Bursary

The 16-19 Bursary Fund helps 16 to 19-year-olds continue in education, where they might otherwise struggle for financial reasons.
