First impressions count. We want all UTC Warrington students to have a competitive edge. Our students will regularly work alongside university and employer partners; we want them to look professional and integrate seamlessly.
Key Stage 4 Dress Code
The dress code for Key Stage 4 students consists of:
- Employer-branded shirt (available to purchase from college)
- Royal blue soft-shell jacket (available to purchase from college)
- Black trousers or black skirt*
- Black smart shoes
*Skirts must be appropriate for work in terms of material, style and length. Skirts should be straight and not tightly tailored or of a stretchy ‘lycra’ type material. Skirts must be worn on the knee and not of high waisted style. Splits should be of an appropriate length for school.
The following items are not permitted: Casual boots/shoes, trainers, jackets and outdoor coats, jeans. The dress code is underpinned by a common sense approach. Ambiguities surrounding it should focus around the question ‘would you wear that to a formal job interview?’
The Principal & Chief Executive retains the final decision on all matters relating to the dress code. Repeated defiance of the dress code will result in parents being contacted and students being told to return home for appropriate attire.
The dress code will be reviewed annually. Students and parents views will be sought before any changes are implemented.
All students must wear a UTC Warrington Lanyard and ID Card when around the college building.
