Sixth Form Dress Code

Westgate Sixth Form Dress Code

The beginning of Key Stage 5 is a new chapter in the transition to adulthood. With this in mind, as a sixth form, it is important that our students present themselves as such. Appearance has a huge impact on overall perceptions of an educational institution. As the Sixth Form is a collective of our most successful students, we require them to be role models in every way, including their appearance.

As a result, Westgate have a dress code which was devised by our current students for our sixth form in order to maintain standards:

Male Dress Code

Dressed in professional business wear, which displays an example to our younger male members of the school.

  • Trousers – Tailored trousers are permitted, either individually or as part of a suit.
  • Shirts/Ties – Buttoned dress shirts must include a collar. Ties are to be worn.
  • Jumpers – Smart plain jumpers may be worn over a collared shirt, but these must not include excessive branding of any kind.
  • Blazers/Suit Jackets – A blazer or jacket are not essential but are more than acceptable.
