Students are expected to bring PE kit for every lesson even when excused through ill health or injury. This is because they are able to be assessed in the role of an official or coach even though they are not able to participate in the practical sessions for whatever reason.  We recommend students bring a towel and plastic carrier bag as sometimes students will be required to participate in PE lessons outside in all weathers throughout the year. The official College optional sportswear may be worn as appropriate (See SWI website).

Sixth Form Dress Code

Sixth form students are free to wear their own clothing. It is important that all students project the correct image to the rest of the local community; therefore we ask 6th form students adhere to the following dress code:
Do not wear clothing which is too revealing.
Girls should not wear low cut tops, midriff tops or very short skirts or shorts.
Boys should not wear trousers which are very low waisted or very short shorts.
Boys and girls are free to wear hats and caps, but need to remember that it is polite to remove them indoors.
Footwear needs to be appropriate for the College environment, no flip flops.
Dress should always be appropriate for a smart causal environment.
