Dress Code

Sixth Form Dress Code

Sixth Form students must recognise their responsibility in acting as ambassadors of the school and as positive role models at all times. We expect all students to be smart and well-presented.

The aim of the Sixth Form dress code is to ensure students are dressed smartly, professionally and in a formal, business style.


White or light blue collared shirt

Black, grey or blue suit

WHHS Sixth Form tie

If a jumper is worn, it should be plain black, grey or navy, V-neck or zip neck. Crew/roll neck jumpers are not allowed

Black formal shoes. Trainers, heavy boots or canvas shoes are not allowed

Hoodies, sweat shirts, gilets, denim jeans or jean style trousers are not to be worn.


Smart plain blouse

Black, grey or navy suit

Lycra ‘body con’ style skirts are not to be worn as these tend to ride up to an unacceptable length. Leather, skater skirts and shorts are not considered smart and should not be worn. Trousers must be tailored and not leggings, jeggings or denim.

 Plain black, grey or navy dress which is of an appropriate length.

Strappy, t-shirt and sleeveless dresses are not allowed

If a jumper is worn, it should be plain. No pattern or logo

Black (flat or low heeled) formal shoes or boots.

Trainers, sandals, flip flops and “Ugg or Dr Marten style” boots are not permitted

Religious headwear must be plain black or white with no designs, logos or sequins and the students’ face must not be obscured.

No sleeveless/duster jackets, hoodies, sweat shirts or gilets.


ID badges must be worn around the neck and be visible at all times.  

Extreme hairstyles are not allowed. Patterns or logos must not be shaved or cut into hair or eyebrows.

Hair must not be dyed unnatural colours.

Discreet jewellery may be worn.  A small ear stud may be worn, but no other facial piercing is allowed. 

Any concerns will be raised with individuals. We reserve the right to ask students to modify/change their dress if they do not meet the requirements listed above and spirit of the Sixth Form dress code.
