At Twickenham School we believe that dress and presentation help to create good personal standards. Parents and carers are therefore requested to give their full support to the school in adhering to the range of clothing recommended to help ensure that all time at school is positive and productive.
It is especially important that uniform is correctly worn by students on the way to and from school. The school uniform is the corporate identity that links students to Twickenham School and all that it stands for. Students who arrive at school incorrectly dressed may be sent home to rectify the matter.
Throughout the school day we expect to see that:
- Ties are done up to the collar and are of the appropriate length
- Top buttons are fastened
- Shirts are tucked into school trousers and skirts
- Make-up, this must be ‘subtle’ and unnoticeable
- The uniform code, including footwear, is correctly followed.

No student is allowed to have temporary or semi-permanent tattoos in any visible position (including visible during PE). Permanent tattoos are of course illegal for anyone under the age of 18 (Tattooing of Minors Act 1969), so we would assume that no student will come to school displaying one of these.
The school reserves the right to send students home to correct infringements of uniform and appearance rules, in line with the School Behaviour Policy, Home School Agreement and current exclusion guidance.
