Dress Code

Students are ambassadors of the school and a high standard of dress and appearance is expected at all times.  We are very proud of our uniform and expect all students to keep within the guidelines set out below.  The Governors of Tring School together with the Headteacher are responsible for setting school uniform regulations.

If parents or pupils are uncertain about any aspect of uniform or appearance they are advised to check with the school.

Full uniform and correct footwear must be worn to and from school.

Students who do not comply with these requirements may be sent home or placed in Internal Exclusion.

The wearing of jewellery by boys and girls at school is not recommended for reasons of health & safety, security and suitability.  We strongly urge parents to discourage the wearing of jewellery at school.  If, however, any parent still feels that some jewellery should be worn, only the following is permitted, which must be removed for activities such as sports and practical lessons.

  • One simple chain worn inside the blouse or shirt, i.e. not visible.
  • One simple signet ring, worn on a finger or on a chain around the neck.
  • For pupils with pierced ears, one pair of simple, plain studs – one stud in each ear lobe only. Spacers & bars are not permitted.  Studs, bars & rings must not be worn on any other part of the body, including the nose, lip, eyebrow, navel and tongue (this is not an exhaustive list).

If pupils are asked to remove items of jewellery for sports or practical activities, their safekeeping remains the pupils’ responsibility.
