Capital 6 Dress Code & Use of Technology
At Capital 6 we expect the very best from our students and work hard to ensure that all are challenged and inspired to achieve their full potential. The Academy has decided that our students must be aware of an ever competitive job market and the importance of a good work ethic; therefore Capital 6 has a smart dress code for our sixth formers.
Capital 6 therefore has a smart dress code for post-16 students.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in students being sent to a member of the Capital 6 team so that they can be sent home to change. Students who study at one of our consortium schools must also follow the dress code expectations of sixth formers on their site.

We understand that some students study Sports as their full-time study programme or have a place at one of our Sports Academies. Students are allowed to wear a Capital City Academy tracksuit, with t-shirt etc, or the official LSB Basketball Academy kit. This can be purchased from the Director of Sport or the LSB Basketball Academy; the cost of this in the past has been approximately £120.
Students who are eligible for the 16-19 bursary fund can be provided with this kit as part of their equipment/clothing for their study programme.
A reminder that use of headphones and ear pods are only permitted during independent study in the Capital 6 Study Area or Capital 6 cafe, and therefore should not be used anywhere else around the Academy. The use of mobile phones is not to be permitted in the school building. However on some occasions and with permission from a member of staff may allow technology to be accessed as part of learning time. Calls can be made in a quiet area within the Capital 6 Study Area with the permission of the Capital 6 team.
