School Uniform

Personal presentation is important in the world of work and we want to make sure that every Cumberland student develops a sense of pride in how they look.

TCS uniform expectations: all uniform items must be plain, without accessories, logos, decoration or any other colours.

All students are expected to adhere to the following uniform expectations:

  • Blazer: navy blue TCS blazer with logo, must be worn at all times in the building
  • Shirt: plain white shirt with collar, must be tucked in
  • Tie: TCS tie, worn to the waist. Two stripes must be visible
  • Jumper (optional): TCS V-Neck with logo
  • Trousers: plain navy blue, tailored, regular fit (no denim, coloured pocket zips)
  • Skirt: plain navy blue, knee-length, pleated with logo
  • Socks or tights: plain black or navy
  • Shoes: plain black leather school shoes, providing adequate protection and support (no casuals, fabric, canvas, trainers, sandals, pumps, ‘work type’ shoes e.g. Dr Martens boots, high heels, boots, coloured laces, coloured stitching)
  • Coat: plain navy blue or black, to be removed in class with the hood down in the building (no leather, suede, denim, hoody, sweatshirt, sports top, body warmer or gilet)

  • Earrings: small plain studs, matching pair or single
  • Hair fasteners allowed and should be either plain black or blue
  • Belts: belt buckles should not be oversized or emblazoned with logos
  • Make-up: to be modest and discreet (no lipstick, false eyelashes, acrylic nails, coloured nail varnish)
  • No facial or body jewellery, tattoos, false nail extensions. Students must also have their natural hair colour
  • Hats: plain black woollen hat and gloves, only to be worn outside the buildings during cold weather (no baseball caps, visors or any type of bandana)
  • No scarves, snoods (neck warmers) to be worn in the school, with the exception of a head scarf which must be plain navy blue
  • No anklets
  • Due to current Covid precautions in place, all students must bring their own face masks and wear them in all communal areas. Masks are optional in lessons

We expect all students to be in correct uniform. Students who choose to disobey the uniform expectations will be sanctioned for deliberate defiance of school rules.  The school may confiscate items of clothing worn to school in defiance of these expectations. In some cases the school may provide an alternative or send the student home to rectify the problem. The parent/carer will be informed that an item has been confiscated and that the item is not permitted in the school and will only be returned to a parent/carer.
