The article sets out to explore whether the concept of 'hate crime' is a relevant and useful way to conceptualise some forms of school bullying between children. We argue that the concept of hate crime can be readilly and usefully applied to some bullying behaviours in schools, but should be done so with caution. In particular, viewing some forms of bullying as hate crime may give new impetus to intervention strategies for those involved in the most serious situations.
