School Uniform

Our school uniform is both attractive and practical.  Where possible some items will have dual use, e.g. the red coat in the juniors is also used as part of the P.E. kit.

School uniform is available from OTTIS, a local company run by Paul & Kerry Bashford, based on Stortford Road in Hatfield Heath.  Paul has had a long association with Howe Green House and was our first P.E. teacher when the school opened in 1987.

OTTIS provide a very personal service.  During the summer holidays they offer an appointment based system to ensure you have time to go through all the uniform requirements without interruption.  In addition to visiting their shop you can telephone or email through your order and goods are delivered directly to the school at no extra charge.  On online ordering system is currently being developed to further enhance the service available.

It is imperative that everything is named, with a sewn in label, which are available to order from our uniform suppliers.

You can contact OTTIS on (01279) 731052 or email ottis@btconnect.com
