Uniform is an important aspect of equal opportunities at Trumpington Community College. It also affords some safety and protection for younger students as they can be easily identified as students of the college.
School uniform is compulsory and students who fail to wear the correct school dress will receive a consequence.
SWI have created a ‘How to Guide’ for using their website. Please view the guide here. They have also created an information leaflet, including how they are staying Covid-19 secure, which you can view here.
