PARENT'S CORNER

Uniform

We believe that our school uniform and dress code should reflect the standards and ethos of The English College. We have clear uniform and dress code guidelines, which all students are expected to conform to. Students need to be aware of our expectations and we would ask parents to insist that their child meets these expectations when they are wearing their uniform, both at school and outside of school. We will challenge any student whose uniform does not meet our expectations and we reserve the right to ask a student to leave school premises to correct their uniform and/or learn from home until they are able to return to school in the correct uniform.

Please note that hairstyles and nails also fall under the remit of uniform.

This year our uniform provider is transitioning from Zaks to Trutex and as a result you will no longer be able to purchase EC uniform from Zaks online or in store after 30th June 2022. Our new partnership with Trutex is already underway and uniform items will be available for parents to purchase from 8th August 2022. If you attempt to purchase online prior to this date the items will show as ‘out of stock’.
