Uniform & Equipment

We have selected uniform which is smart, distinctive, stylish, environmentally friendly, affordable and of high quality so that it can be put through a washing machine on a regular basis without losing its shape or colour. Items with our school logo are readily available online and in store at:

Second hand uniform items donated to Turing House Friends are sold at occasional sales or via the following website:

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 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.

We expect students and parents to apply common sense to any items that they might bring to school, and we publish a list of banned items
