Behaviour & Appearance

As a Sixth Form student you are inevitably a role model for the younger pupils in the School. They look up to Sixth Former students and copy your behaviour and appearance. As part of a school based Sixth Form, high standards of behaviour and appearance are expected: Sixth Form students set the standard for the rest of the school.

The Sixth Form has always worked through mutual co-operation and consent. Having made the choice to stay at Ysgol Gyfun Cymer Rhondda after Year 11 we expect students to work with us to uphold the traditions and ethos of the Sixth Form which has made it so successful over the years.

We hope that by joining the Sixth Form you will contribute positively to the promotion of a culture of mutual respect and want to be a role model for others within the school community. The Sixth Form dress code aims to promote smartness and confidence and is similar to what would be expected if you were in employment in a business situation. Students must adhere to the school’s dress code at all times.
