Tottington High School

School Uniform & PE Kit
The wearing of school uniform is compulsory. Full uniform must be worn in school and when journeying to and from school. When a student is admitted, it is on condition that parents accept our school uniform regulations, and therefore it is assumed that parents are willing to ensure that their child conforms to these in every respect.

In selecting our school uniform, we have attempted to combine the important factors of neatness, practicality and easy availability. We have tried to avoid burdening parents with unnecessary expenditure on highly distinctive and expensive items of clothing, whilst still achieving high standards of appearance.


School Tie

As you may be aware, there has been a delay with the traditional school ties (non clip on) for year 7.

We have clip on ties that we can issue for now.

Therefore, on the first day of school, we will issue a temporary clip on tie for any student who needs one/has purchased one via Scopay.

This also applies to other year groups who have purchased a traditional tie (non clip on).

As soon as the traditional ties arrive in school (around 11th September) we will collect the clip on and issue the traditional tie.

Apologies. The company has obviously been impacted by COVID so thank you for your understanding.
