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.

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.
