Dress Code

Sixth Form Business Dress Code    

A dress code is important as it helps to ensure there is parity for all students and it ensures there is respect for the whole school community.  All Sixth Form students need to be proud to be a member of WG6.

It is important that the dress and appearance worn by Sixth Formers reflect their senior position in school and it therefore needs to be decent, safe and appropriate to a school setting. This may mean that this is very different to the choices adopted in your personal life.

We do not want any student to choose to dress or appear in a manner which could be viewed as offensive or inappropriate and which could render them vulnerable to criticism or allegation.

  • Students must wear a matching business tailored 2 or 3-piece suit (colours black, navy or grey) with a collared shirt and tie or round neck blouse or sleeved tailored dress with tailored suit jacket.
  • A tailored suit jacket must be worn at all times around the school site.
  • Shoulders and midriffs should be covered.  There should be no logos.
  • Skirts need to be of an appropriate length, just above the knee.
  • Smart footwear should be worn - no boots or trainers.
  • Headscarves are not allowed - except for religious reasons.
  • No extreme coloured hair. Any extensions or dyed hair needs to be of a natural colour.
  • You are not permitted to wear:  T-shirts, hoodies, tracksuit tops, denim, leggings, body con tops or dresses, short tight fitted skirts.
  • Make-up (including nails) and jewellery (including earrings) should be discrete. No visible body piercing or tattoos are permitted. Only clear nose studs will be permitted. All other piercings need to be removed.
  • No outdoor coats or earphones to be worn inside buildings, to assembly or in lessons.
  • WG6 pin badge and Lanyard must be worn at all times for safeguarding.
