Upper School Uniform Policy
Our uniform identifies our community as we all work together to live our mission. It supports our focus on learning, develops responsible attitudes towards personal appearance, and provides us with a sense of pride in the wearing of our crest that represents the ideals and aspirations of our School.
The uniform guidelines support parents in partnering with the School to ensure that our students are prepared and ready for the learning opportunities that each day will present. We are grateful for the parental support needed to ensure that our uniform guidelines are adhered to. Any questions concerning dress should be directed to your, or your child’s, class advisor in the first instance, otherwise the Dean of Upper School Student Life, Mrs. Elizabeth Burton. Any exchanges/returns for uniform purchases must be left at Security, not at the Upper School office.
All Upper School students, out of respect for themselves and the TASIS England community, are expected to dress according to the uniform guidelines. The uniform must be worn during the academic day, from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Boarding students are to come to breakfast dressed in uniform or ready for their first-period class. Students are required to purchase all TASIS-crested clothing/items from the designated TASIS vendor or used uniform sale. Trousers and skirts can be purchased from other vendors, provided that they comply with the length, color, and style guidelines. Skirts can also be purchased from the TASIS uniform vendor.
Fall Uniform: First day of school to last day of school before October Break
Winter Uniform: First day after October Break to the last day of school before Spring Break
Spring Uniform: First day after Spring Break to the last day of exams
