Standards of appearance and behaviour expectations

The Form Tutor is responsible for checking the cleanliness, tidiness and dress of each pupil in their form, and for ensuring that their tutees wear correct School uniform. Form Tutors will initiate action when criticism of dress of a pupil is reported to them by other staff. The Form Tutor will firstly speak to the pupil and, if there is no improvement, impose ‘encouraging’ sanctions. If there is still no improvement, the help of parents will be enlisted, and final recourse is to the Head Master or Senior Deputy Head.

A high standard of Sixth Form dress is expected at all times. The dress regulations allow individual choice and discretion, but pupils and parents are responsible for ensuring that the requirements are met. A smart appearance is the primary aim, with the avoidance of any extravagant, flamboyant or casual styles of clothing. In this respect, the Headmaster’s decision is final.

Sports Dress Code

All Sixth Form pupils are expected to wear School branded sports kit for Games and sports clubs. Pupils who play rugby, hockey, cricket or tennis in the Sixth Form have a specific kit they will need to wear. If you choose not to play these sports you can wear any school branded kit you may have worn previously or purchase items from the Stevenson’s website Year 11 – 13 General sports kit section. Wearing your ‘own clothes’ for sports lessons is not allowed. If unsure, please ask a member of the PE department for advice.

 

Drugs 

Typically, the Sixth Form brings with it far more opportunities to socialise as a peer group both inside and outside of school. While the vast majority of pupils avail themselves of such opportunities responsibly, a small minority are tempted into misusing controlled drugs and other substances. 

All members of the Sixth Form are reminded that the school’s drug and substance abuse policy (available on request from the Deputy Head Pastoral) applies to all pupils at Warwick School, at all times, including holidays, whether or not a pupil is under the care of the school at the time. Further, pupils are reminded that anyone possessing or using drugs must expect to be excluded permanently from school.   

 

Smoking and Vaping 

Members of the Sixth Form are reminded that smoking (including all use of tobacco products, herbal substitutes, and vaping) is not permitted on school premises. The sanction for anyone caught smoking in this way will be a suspension. Members of the Sixth Form are also reminded that the smoking policy applies to all pupils identified as Warwick School pupils being observed smoking, associating with smokers or found in the possession of smoking materials. (The smoking policy is available from the Deputy Head Pastoral on request).
