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. Dress code and appearance of Sixth Formers must reflect the 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 plain matching business tailored 2 or 3 piece suit (colours black, navy or grey) with a collared shirt and tie (boys) or blouse or round necked top (girls). Girls may also wear tailored matching dresses.
  • A matching suit jacket must be worn at all times around the school site.
  • Shoulders and midriffs should be covered.  There should be no logos.
  • Tailored Skirts and dresses need to be of an appropriate length, just above the knee.
  • V neck jumpers are permitted but no roll neck jumpers should be worn.
  • 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.
  • No hoodies, denim, leggings, short tight fitted skirts or strappy tops..
  • Make-up and jewellery (including earrings) should be discrete. No visible body piercing or tattoos are permitted. Only clear nose studs will be permitted.
  • No outdoor coats or earphones to be worn inside buildings, to assembly or in school
  • WG6 lanyard and pin badge must be worn at all times for safeguarding.
