We are proud of the Tarporley High School uniform. It represents the high personal standards that we hold as a school community. It is important for all students to have the right clothing and to wear it correctly. On behalf of the Governing Body and the staff, I thank you for your support in this.
Tarporley High School is proud of its image and reputation. Wearing your uniform with pride shows the commitment you have to the school and to giving your personal best.
Your appearance must always be smart, and only school uniform clothing can be worn. THS Uniform is available from the school shop.
In addition to the standard uniform, there are a few things to remember in terms of appearance:
- We accept that some students may wish to wear make-up, but this should be natural looking (no coloured lipstick or heavy eye make-up allowed)
- We do not accept unnatural colours of hair dye or coloured nail varnish, gel nails or false nails
- Jewellery is restricted to a plain stud or sleeper earring in the traditional place in each ear, and one plain finger ring; an inexpensive watch is also allowed
- Trousers are to be worn at the waist
If you or your parents/carers are in any doubt about an item of clothing intended for school please contact the school to speak with a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

School Uniform Shop
At the request of parents we have increased the stock we hold to include tights. Our skirts can only be purchased from school and we stock a range of sizes and lengths that will enable all girls to meet our expectations of a “standard length” i.e. no shorter than 4 inches above the knee. Trutex are able to supply grey trousers throughout the year for girls and boys in styles that are appropriate for school. Their website is www.trutexdirect.com
