Dixons Cottingley Academy


The academy has a dress code that all students are expected to follow. There is an emphasis on being clean, tidy and presentable. Students should recognise that conflict over the dress code is inappropriate.

Our dress code is practical and within very clear boundaries. The dress code applies both within school and on the journey to and from school.
