'Added pressure'

Holly has since called for the new rules on uniform to be relaxed, arguing the establishment should be more worried about education than appearance.

But Tanbridge House said parents had been invited to raise concerns over the policy since April this year.

Headteacher of Tanbridge House School, Jules White, said: “We are very proud of the smart appearance of all our students.

“If any parent has a concern they are most welcome to contact their child’s leader of year to discuss it.

“The opportunity to liaise with our school on this matter has been available since April 2019.

“Tanbridge House has the highest standards of care, behaviour and academic performance and that’s why we had over 440 first choice preference for 300 places in year seven.”

Bali's Green School is leading a renaissance of bamboo architecture.
There is a major renaissance in correctly growing, cutting, treating, drying, and laminating bamboo so it can be used with confidence for substantial and near-permanent structures. Much of the inspiration for this has come from Green School founders John and Cynthia Hardy and their daughter Elora. Their TED talks and YouTube videos have been widely watched. Bamboo always has been a basic construction material in tropical latitudes. But generally it has been used for inexpensive shacks, stalls, fences, scaffolding, and sunscreens.
