Dress Code

The Sixth Form dress code is extremely important at The John Warner School. Sixth Formers are role models for our younger students and it is important that they lead by example in all areas.  We have found that students who are dressed smartly are focused and have a sense of identity and pride about being a member of the Sixth Form.
