Turing House

Uniform

We want our school uniform to be smart, distinctive, stylish, environmentally friendly and affordable.  We also want it to be of high quality so that it can be put through a washing machine and tumble drier on a regular basis without losing its shape or colour.   We've worked hard to make choices that reflect those principles, and have arranged for uniform items to be readily available at Stevenson's Len Smiths store in Twickenham, as well as online via our supplier's website.  Several items (*marked with an asterix below) are widely available at alternative retail outlets if preferred.

We believe that good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and identify students to local residents and future employers. The co-operation of all parents/carers is requested to ensure that students are in correct uniform to and from school, as well as during normal school hours, and in respecting that the school makes the final decision as to what is, or is not, acceptable in all aspects of a student's appearance.

The School acknowledges that parents may from time to time request variations to the School’s dress code on grounds of religion or belief, race, disability or on medical grounds. Any such requests will always be given careful consideration on a case-by-case basis.

We expect students and parents to apply common sense to any items that they might bring to school. Further details of banned items and the school's approach to them should they be brought to school is available here
