Dixons McMillan Academy

KS4 Business Dress

The academy has a dress code that all students are expected to follow. There is an emphasis on being clean and tidy and students must be appropriate for a place of work.

We offer support to families in need with uniform and encourage all of our families to donate any unwanted business dress back to school so that we can repurpose it for families in need.

Our Uniform Shop is available at all parents' evenings, where families can get any second-hand business dress they need free of charge. We also offer other options for support so please do contact school if you need help with your child's business attire.
