At Twickenham School we believe that dress and presentation help to create good personal standards among students. Parents / carers are requested to give their full support to the school in adhering to the range of clothing recommended.
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 of the school 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:
- face masks (stored in a sealed bag)
- 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.
