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.
The school has the following uniform requirements for students in years 7 to 11.

School Uniform Shop
At the request of parents we have increased the stock we hold to include skirts and tights. We recommend that you purchase skirts from the school as 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 school year for girls and boys in styles that are appropriate for school. Their website is www.trutexdirect.com
