Uniform

At Twickenham Academy we believe that dress and presentation help to create good personal standards among students. Parents / carers are requested to give their full support to the school in adhering to the range of clothing recommended.

It is especially important that uniform is correctly worn by students on the way to and from school. The school uniform is the corporate identity of the school that links students to Twickenham Academy and all that it stands for. Students who arrive at school incorrectly dressed may be sent home to rectify the matter.

Throughout the school day we expect to see that:

  • ties are done up to the collar and are of the appropriate length  
  • top buttons are fastened  
  • shirts are tucked into school trousers and skirts  
  • Make-up, this must be ‘subtle’ and unnoticeable 
  • the uniform code, including footwear, is correctly followed. 

Where to Purchase our School Uniform

All of the Twickenham Academy uniform is available to purchase at: 

Address: Schooldays & Just Dancing, 94 High Street, Whitton TW2 7LN
Tel: 0208 898 4881
Email: shop@schooldaysllp.co.uk

I am sure that you understand the importance of both the school and home working together to help ensure that your child has a positive and productive time at Twickenham Academy. In order to promote a happy and healthy learning environment we must jointly uphold the standards that the school has set and expects from all of its students.
