Students are ambassadors of the school and a high standard of dress and appearance is expected at all times. The Governors of Tring School together with the Headteacher are responsible for setting school uniform regulations. We are very proud of our uniform and expect all students to keep within the guidelines set out at the end of this page.
The quality of the clothes available from the School Shop is extremely good and also excellent value for money with the added bonus of all profit going back into the School.
We are pleased to be able to offer a range of branded school uniform and PE kit. We also sell non-bespoke items such as shirts, blouses, stitched down knife pleated skirts and trousers and, like the branded items, they are great quality and excellent value – we regularly compare our prices to popular high street brands.
