Changes to the school uniform  

 

As we have now become part of Tauheedul Education Trust (TET), there will be a change in our school uniform. We will be moving towards the uniform worn in all TET secondary schools.  The year 7 students joining us in September will be the first to wear our new uniform.  The new uniform will not be with the uniform suppliers until June at the earliest.  We understand that Natasha’s Schoolwear in Bradford offer a savings scheme for parents and it is possible other uniform suppliers may do the same.  

There will be a transition period of 18 months for our current students in years 7-10 to acquire items as their current uniform needs to be replaced, with the exceptions of:- 

  • All current students in years 7-10 will be issued with a new tie free of charge in September 2017 and it will not be permitted for any student to wear the current tie from this date
  • All girls will be expected to wear the new school blouse from September 2017 as the current open necked shirt is not suitable for wearing with a tie.
  • All students will be issued with a new lanyard, free of charge, in September 2017.

It is expected that all current students with the exception of those at Post 16 will be wearing the new uniform fully from September 2018.

Full uniform details can be seen on our uniform information page. http://www.tongschool.co.uk/school_uniform.htm
