The dress code is in place to ensure all our students are ready for the world of work. We want our students to be proud of their professional appearance and cooperate with the dress code, which will ensure this. If any student chooses not to adhere to this dress code they will face sanctions, which will include missing valuable lesson time. We do not want this to happen and appreciate all students’ cooperation with this policy.
