Uniforms

Dress Code and Uniform

The aim of our uniform is for students to present a neat, work-like appearance at all times and to take pride in being members of GEMS Wellington Academy – Silicon Oasis. Personal presentation is therefore very important and a high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students at all times, both inside the Academy campus and outside in the local community. The students are our ambassadors when they are out in the Dubai community and what they do and say, and how they look reflects on all of us. Students should make sure to create a positive impression at all times.

School uniform is compulsory throughout the Academy and may be purchased from ZAKS at either The Beach Centre, Jumeirah (tel: 800 Zaks (04 342 9828)) or at the store in Motor City . Uniform can be ordered online from: www.zaksstore.com. We particularly ask for parent’s support and cooperation in ensuring that students represent themselves, their families and GEMS Wellington Academy - Silicon Oasis well in the local Dubai community and beyond.

 

Please make sure you clearly label all uniform items, also including all bags, lunchboxes, waterbottles and other personal belongings. Please help us to return lost items to you as quickly as possible, by ensuring they are clearly named.

Students bring valuables into the Academy at their own risk. During P.E. lessons, any valuables must be handed to a member of the P.E. team to ensure these are stored securely.



Appearance

  • All students may wear a watch.
  • Girls wear one small stud earring in each ear lobe and these should be removed for PE and swimming. No other piercings are permitted. Make-up and nail polish may not be worn. Sixth Form girls are permitted to wear discrete make-up, nail polish, a ring, bracelet and necklace as befitting a business environment. Jewellery items of religious significance may only be worn with prior approval by the academy, following a formal written parental request.
  • Shirts/blouses should be of an appropriate size (not overlarge) and boys’ shirts should be properly tucked in at the waist at all times.
  • Ties should be tied in a small neat knot that covers the fastened top button
  • Shoes should be polished regularly
  • When sweaters are not being worn they should not be tied around the waist.
  • Full and correct uniform must be worn in, and whilst travelling to and from, the academy. This also applies after school and travelling home after activities and on all academy trips unless otherwise instructed by a member of staff.
  • Students are reminded that they should change out of academy uniform and into casual clothes at the end of the day to attend social events.
  • Students should wear full school uniform to all Parent Teacher Consultations and other formal academy events


Hairstyles

  • Girl’s hair should be tied back fully off the face in one or two braids or ponytails. The sensible use of hair accessories is acceptable to keep hair orderly and neat eg. Alice band, hairband, clips, slides, elastic bands etc. as long as they are plain white, dark blue or black.
  • Boys’ hair must be well off the collar at the back and off the ears and face, no shorter than a number 2 barber cut. Shaved heads are not acceptable. Boys are expected to be clean shaven as this is also part of their neat and businesslike personal presentation. If a boy wishes to refrain from shaving for religious reasons, parents are requested to communicate directly with the form tutor.
  • Student’s hair must be of a natural colour rather than bright, obvious or “unnatural”, and be neat and of a modest style. Hairstyling products (non coloured gel, wax, mousse etc.) can be used to style hair in a neat and tidy manner, but not to create exaggerated hairstyles, for example, spikes. If a hairstyle contravenes these requirements the student will be requested to amend this with immediate effect and if this is not possible they will be required to remain at home until such time as their hair has returned to an acceptable condition.
