PUNISHMENT + REFORM + EDUCATION

School Uniform is compulsory at Hardacre Hall. It makes our girls clearly identifiable whenever they are out of the school, and inside the school it assists in the maintenance of good order. When every pupil is dressed alike, the Sins of Vanity and Pride are discouraged, and each and every girl is guided toward the understanding that she is part of a large institution and her personal wishes and selfish needs are of no consequence.
Many other schools have made the mistake of "modernising" their Uniform Regulations. We feel this has contributed in no small part to the decline in Moral Standards in our nation.
At Hardacre Hall, we continue to specify the uniform that has stood the school in good stead since the Great War. Some may consider the uniform to be heavy, cumbersome, restrictive, and repressive, but those are the very qualities we seek in our school dress code. These factors will discourage showing off and loud behaviour. The school hat with its hatband proclaiming our mission "Punishment - Reform - Education" is a constant reminder to passers-by that there still exists an institution prepared to provide discipline to wayward girls, and this in itself will improve the attitude of even non-Hardacre Hall girls.
The Church Trust encourages all parents to ensure that even when at home their daughters are dressed in the properly ladylike and traditional manner appropriate to a submissive daughter.
The School hosts the Acme Uniform Manufacturing Company Collection of photographic images of Schoolgirls, and this is available for the instruction and amusement of Teachers and Parents.
Visitors are welcome to browse among this collection, and donations of additional material are always welcome. Please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org .
