Uniform

At The Hart School we firmly believe that the wearing of a smart school uniform encourages pride and loyalty to the school and demonstrates that the student is a willing member of our community. Parents and carers are asked to ensure that their child is dressed correctly for school. We particularly welcome your support on uniform and equipment.
