Please see below for information for our Sixth Form students.
The Post 16 Bursary Policy, including information, guidance and application form is available under Parents & Students in the Policies section of the website
Key information and dates:
Year 13 studies start as soon as students have completed their exams in each subject. Students must attend all lessons as they prepare for exams in lesson time, study periods and in their own independent learning time at home.
Sixth Form Dress Code
Sixth Form students are required to follow a ´business dress´ style which avoids extremes of fashion and would be appropriate to an office working environment. Outlined below are the details of the dress code:
v Suit-jacket with trousers, skirt or suit dress (skirts must be knee length)
v Tights must be worn
v Shoes-heels up to 2 ½ inches (no UGG boots). No sandals or shoes with open toe
v Blouse or smart top (no top to be low cut)
v Shirt and tie of choice
v Smart cardigan and/or V neck jumper
v Tie must be worn with shirt collar fastened and tie length to reach the top of trousers/belt
v Business shoes (not training or other casual shoe)
To prevent unnecessary purchases, please check with me first if in doubt and keep your receipt.
BTEC National in Sport
As a Sports College we recognise the importance and impact of physical activity and sport on our students. We understand that the nature of the sports courses means that students can participate in practical activity for the majority of a school day. Following consultation with our Sports Prefects we have designed a new black Nike Sports Tracksuit that can also be worn around school and that must be worn in all practical sports lessons. The Nike sports tracksuit will be available for purchasing from the start of the summer holidays from Rawcliffes (see address below). However it is not necessary to purchase this if you have the grey and black Nike Sports Tracksuit that has been worn this academic year. Should you still wish to purchase any items please visit

Trainers are to be worn, not pumps and no jewellery or wrist bands are to be worn in PE lessons for health and safety purposes. Any tattoos should be covered and there should be no extremes of hair colour, jewellery and no coloured nail varnish or hats are to be worn in school.
Sixth Form Equipment
All Sixth Form courses require all students to bring basic equipment to lessons. You should therefore prepare for your final year of studies by ensuring that you have a minimum of pens, pencils, eraser, ruler, sharpener, calculator, A4 lined paper, A4 file and file dividers, plastic wallets and a suitable bag to fit all of these items (handbags are not appropriate). It is vital to be highly organised and prepared. Some courses may require students to have specialised equipment and materials. Please be aware that it may be possible to apply for financial assistance for some equipment and materials, and details of our Post 16 bursary will be made available upon request.
