Uniform Swap Or Shop
As part of our Community Matters initiative, we continuously look at ways to support our families.
Following the success of our Uniform Swap or Shop event in December, we will be rolling this facility out and hosting more of these during Parents Evenings this year.
At each event, you can come along and buy items of pre-loved uniform for a small donation. Alternatively, you can bring uniform items and swap them for something else. So, for example, if your child has outgrown their blazer or PE kit, you can swap it for a bigger one (subject to availability).
Event dates are as follows:
Tuesday 9th January (Year 11 Parents' Evening)
Wednesday 7th February (Year 9 Parents' Evening)
Thursday 7th March (Year 8 Parents' Evening)
Thursday 21st March (Year 10 Parents' Evening)
Wednesday 24th April (Year 7 Parents' Evening)
Parents and carers from any year group can come along to swap or purchase uniform items at any of these events.
In addition, to help us to ensure we have enough items available for each event, we continue to accept any uniform items you no longer need and are willing to donate. We are particularly keen to hold stock of PE kit items and blazers as these are the most expensive items to buy new.
Donations can include:
- PE kit items
We do not accept donations of shoes or socks.
Please note that all donated items must be in good, clean and wearable condition.
If you would like to donate any items, please drop them in the box located in reception.
Our Parent Character Ambassadors will be sorting out the donations and helping to run the stall.
