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.

All items of school uniform and sports kit are available to buy from the online school uniform shop via Wisepay.  The school also holds a second hand uniform sale once a month (generally the first Monday of the month), for dates and timings please check the school calendar.  If parents or pupils 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.

Blouses/Shirts

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.

Jumper

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/Trousers

Skirts must be black, knee length (touching the knee-cap when standing upright) and be of a stitched down knife pleated design.

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 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.
  • Bracelets are not permitted.
  • 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).
  • A watch.
  • 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.
