HIS School Uniform

Hawar International School students are representative of their school, and are expected to maintain their appearance in compliance with the school dress code and with respect to Bahrain customs and traditions. Students are required to be in the appropriate uniform from the time that they arrive at school until the time that they leave the campus at the end of the school day.


Students are expected to be appropriately dressed according to their daily timetable. Uniforms and PE clothes should be neat and tidy at all times. In cases where students are not properly dressed, they are not allowed to enter the classroom and the parents will be contacted to bring the proper clothes to school or to take their child home.

During the colder months, non-uniform jackets are permitted to and from school as well as during break. At other times they are not allowed and should be removed when inside the school building. Hats are not permitted inside the building but are strongly advised during break in the hot sunny months.

In addition we ask all parents to pay particular attention to the following:

  • Shoes must be of black leather and of a regulation design. They should not have high heels, ostentatious ornament or high platforms. 
  • Trainers, boots, open toed sandals or loose fitting slip-on shoes may not be worn. Football boots with studs are not acceptable footware
  • Girls may wear one pair of ear studs and a chain if it is of religious significance, but no other jewellery, nail polish or make-up is allowed
  • All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name
  • Hair should be neat and tidy with no unnatural colours. Long hair should be tied back. Hairstyles should not be aggressive or idiosyncratic. It is at the discretion of the Principal to decide whether a hairstyle is acceptable or not
  • Tight fitting leggings are inappropriate for boys and girls in any Grade level and students will not be permitted in school wearing these
