School Uniform

All students are expected to wear the school uniform. All students should be dressed appropriately for school, wearing the approved school uniform as listed in this policy.   We endeavor to set the highest possible standards of appearance and, to this end, home support is expected.  School dress helps establish a sense of identity and saves students and parents from being caught up in the expense of the “extravagances of fashion”.

TLA School Uniform Policy

Jewellery, Hair and Cosmetics

Small stud earrings (ONE pair) are allowed but large hoop earrings are not. No “ear stretchers” are allowed. A wrist watch may be worn as can smart watches, although these do fall under the phone policy of not being seen or heard during the school day. Nose studs and other piercings are NOT acceptable in school and contravene Health and Safety regulations.  (NO JEWELLERY IS TO BE WORN DURING PE LESSONS)

Nails should be of a suitable length to fully participate in all activities safely. Make-up should be understated and subtle.


Hair may not be worn in extreme or inappropriate styles. Hair accessories should be suitable for students to participate in all activities safely.

Students must wear full school uniform:

  • Black school trousers/knee length skirt (listed school skirt and trouser designs ONLY)

  • Black socks, ankle or knee length (no over-knee length)

  • White shirt (to include a collar and a top button)

  • School tie

  • Navy blue jumper (with school logo)

  • Plain black sensible shoes (no coloured marking or decoration)

  • Coat or jacket (no ‘hoodies’ or extra jumpers/cardigans to be worn in school)
