We consider that wearing a school uniform is an essential characteristic of Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School, since it encourages girls to identify themselves as members of our school community and it provides a special form of training for later life.
We expect a tidy, smart appearance and the wearing of sensible clothes at all times. In order to maintain standards, if a girl is in incorrect uniform and with no note from home to explain why, then we will either ring home and ask for correct uniform to be brought into school or the girl will be sent home to change.
