Our students worked with a professional designer to create smart and practical Academy clothing items. Our dress code is in keeping with the philosophy of Twickenham Academy, allowing students some choice as to which items of clothing they wear and in which combination, providing the Twickenham Academy logo is visible at all times. This enables students to adapt their dress code according to the day´s activities and temperature, just as they would in the workplace.
The ‘mix´n´match´ elements of the dress code comprise a V-neck jumper, cardigan, polo shirts, blazer and tie. Examples of the different combinations can be seen throughout our prospectus and website.
Students may pick from the following:

Clothing in the Academy should at all times be smart and in a good state of repair, in keeping with a modern school.

Standardised clothing expectations are not in place to exclude students from any background and therefore a parent having genuine difficulty providing items of Academy clothing should contact their child's College Director in confidence.
