At CTTH, we believe that a neat and orderly appearance enhances the focus, concentration, and mood of a student. It also creates a sense of purpose and respect for the student’s daily task of study and education, and a professional and academic environment conducive to learning and growth. Our students are the de facto ambassadors of a Torah education in the city, and must dress the part. Being presentable, neat, and clean is a great Torah value, as it says in the Talmud, “Cleanliness leads to purity, holiness, and humility” (Yerushalmi Shekalim 3:3).


We ask all CTTH parents to please help us maintain a respectable dress code at school, that strikes a balance between absolute uniformity and individuality, as per the ethos of the Cape Town Torah High. We reserve the right to enforce wardrobe infractions by denying admittance to class.
