The Thomas Hardye School
"Knowledge and Truth"

School Uniform

School uniform develops a feeling of self-esteem among students and does much to eliminate feelings of inequality as well as projecting a positive image for the school. All students (other than the Sixth Form) will wear the items of dress set out below. The school asks for your co-operation to ensure that your child always comes to school wearing correct school uniform. If for any reason this is not possible, please write a note to your child's tutor.

All students in the lower school have a locker for bags and coats.
