We expect Denbigh Sixth Formers to set an example to the rest of the school and this includes with their behaviour and conduct. Sixth Former students are automatically role models to the younger students in the school and should act in a way that inspires others to follow in their footsteps.
Excellent behaviour at Denbigh School involves upholding the three school values of ‘Be Engaged, Be Kind and Respectful and Do No Harm’. These values are reinforced during Mentor sessions and through opportunities to work with lower school students in enrichment activities.
Expectations of outstanding behaviour continue when our Sixth Formers are in and around the local community. We remind our Sixth Form students that they are representing themselves and Denbigh School at all times. This is one of the reasons why we have extremely strong working relationships with local businesses in Shenley Church End and Denbigh School has maintained its excellent reputation throughout Milton Keynes.

Denbigh Sixth Form’s dress code is smart casual. We do not insist on ‘office wear’ however we do expect our Sixth Former students to wear clothing that is appropriate for a learning environment.
Sixth Form students are expected to conform to the Sixth Form dress code within the school and on journeys to and from school. As young adults, they are preparing themselves for the next steps in their lives and this includes taking responsibility for what they wear to school. Denbigh Sixth Formers should be dressed for an academic environment.
