Uniform & Equipment
Changing Trends and fashion
At Tendring Technology College we have a formal working atmosphere and therefore retain the right to veto any garment or accessory brought into College; these maybe confiscated and returned directly to parents.
Students attending College without the correct uniform will be provided, whenever possible with loan items for the day which they will be expected to wear to comply with the College policy.
