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.
We are pleased to be able to offer a range of branded school uniform and PE kit as well as non-bespoke items such as shirts, blouses and stitched down knife pleated skirts.
The quality of the clothes available from the School Shop is extremely good and also excellent value for money and our prices are regularly compared to popular high street brands. All profits go back into the school.
If an exchange is required please fill in the Uniform Return Form (available in the document folder at the end of this page) and ensure that all items are returned in original packaging with tags attached to the school Reception. This process can take up to 5 days if the uniform is in stock. (Please check the website in case the new item is a different price in which case the returning item will be credited back to your card and a new order will need to be made via ParentPay to your card you paid with). Emails will be sent out once the order is ready for collection from Reception during school opening hours. Due to lack of space please collect your order at your earliest convenience.
If a refund is required please fill in the Uniform Return Form (available in the document folder at the end of this page) and ensure that all items are returned in original packaging with tags attached to the school Reception. This process can take up to 2 weeks to be credited back into the account you paid with. Mouthguards cannot be returned if the packaging has been opened.
Please return items for a refund/exchange within 2 months of purchase.
Order to collection
Please allow a minimum of 5 working days if the uniform item is in our school stock. If an item is not in stock (due to lack of school storage space we are unable to stock the full range) please allow a minimum of 2 weeks.
An email will be sent to confirm your order is ready for collection from Reception.
If parents or students are uncertain about any aspect of uniform or appearance they are advised to check with the school as students who do not comply with these requirements may be sent home or placed in Internal Exclusion. Sixth Form students who are not adhering to the dress code will be sent home to change.

Dress Code for Year 7 - 11
This is plain black with the school crest on the pocket. The blazer should be worn at all times in school, apart from those lessons where blazers would be unsuitable. The school badge may be purchased from the school uniform shop.
Blouses and shirts are white, with a collar, full length cuffed sleeve or short sleeved if preferred. The blouse/shirt must be tucked in at all times. Fitted shirts that do not tuck in are not allowed. If a vest or T shirt is worn under the blouse or shirt it must be plain white.
Year 11 students wear a pale blue blouse or shirt
A plain black V neck jumper is optional. The school tie should be clearly visible through the V neck. No symbols or patterns are allowed on the jumpers. Cardigans are not acceptable and will be confiscated.
Skirts must be black, not rolled at the waist and be of a knife pleat stitched down design and no more than 10cm either above or below the knee in length. This length is a change to the current dress code.
Trousers must be of a full length, plain black, tailored and without external pockets. Skinny trousers, leggings, jeans or trousers made of any kind of denim or denim look alike are not permitted. If a belt is required it must be plain black with a simple buckle.
The school tie is worn unless specific permission for its removal is granted. The tie is clip on with the house colour running through the stripe.

Parents are asked to provide sensible weatherproof coats. Denim and leather jackets are not allowed. Coats that are light coloured and/or incorporate fluorescent and reflective materials are more visible and therefore safer. Coat hoods must not be up unless the weather dictates it. Sweatshirts & hoodies are not allowed to be worn at any time unless permission (eg Drama productions, House Captains etc) is given.
The wearing of jewellery in school is not recommended for reasons of health & safety, security and suitability. We strongly urge parents to discourage the wearing of jewellery at school.

- 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.

- Badges on blazers – only school issue ie Buddies, Library Ambassador, House etc.
If pupils are asked to remove items of jewellery for sports or practical activities, their safekeeping remains the pupils’ responsibility.
