Sixth Form Dress Code

Sixth Form students are role models for students in lower school, and their standards of dress are an important part of the culture of Whickham. Students are expected to regard Sixth Form dress requirements in a positive manner. Our dress code stops short of uniform and instead, we have a dress code that is formal, smart, business-like and comfortable, whilst recognising the variety of dress considered appropriate in workplaces our students will go on to work in.

Males:

  • Black, Navy, Grey trousers not jeans (including no skinny jeans)
  • Collared shirt and tie
  • Plain black/brown/ Navy formal shoes (No ā€˜pumpā€™ style shoes such as; Vans/ Converse)
  • Lanyards must be worn to ensure the safeguarding of all students.

Females:

  • Black, Navy, Grey trousers/ skirt (no miniskirts) not jeans (including no skinny jeans)
  • Blouse or shirt (covering shoulders, back and midriff)
  • Plain black/brown/ Navy formal shoes (No ā€˜pumpā€™ style shoes such as; Vans/ Converse)
  • Lanyards must be worn to ensure the safeguarding of all students.

Trainers will only be allowed for PE lessons

Sportswear

BTEC Sport, A-Level PE, CSLA/HSLA students are permitted to wear Whickham Sport kit (Whickham top, appropriate black bottoms and hooded top) on days they have practical lessons only. If you do not have Whickham Sixth Form PE kit you need to get changed for practical lessons.

Recreational Sport students are required to change from their SF Dress code to sportswear for practical sessions. They need to register with the allocated member of staff and then get changed. Students are not permitted to wear their sportswear for the full school day. Sweat style joggers are not permitted. Students must wear suitable trainers for sporting lessons not ā€˜pumpā€™ style shoes.

Students who do not adhere to the dress code will be sent home in order to change into appropriate clothing.

*Please note mobile phones are not permitted to be out in tutorial or lesson time. Students found with mobile phones will be asked to put these away and repeated incidents may result in the phone being confiscated.
