School Shop

School Shop

The School Shop aims to be a one stop shop and is located in the Sports Hall off Shelburne Road. In addition to the regulation uniform which must be purchased from the Shop, it stocks the majority of items on the school uniform lists, including a range of footwear, sports equipment, stationery, toiletries and confectionery.

The Shop is run by the School for the benefit of the pupils and their parents and prices are as competitive as they can possibly be, taking into consideration quality and durability. Parents are welcome to purchase items directly from the School Shop and the methods of payment are cheque, cash or credit card.

The School also has a Second Hand Shop on site.

Fitting times & Appointments

After the summer half term, the shop operates a series of appointments designed to avoid the last minute rush for uniform. Each pupil will receive dedicated time to purchase everything they need. Appointments are either half an hour or an hour long depending on whether the child is an existing or new pupil. Payment for uniform should be cleared by cheque, cash or credit card on the day of purchase.

Appointments apply to EVERYBODY who needs uniform and it is essential to ring the shop to arrange an appointment. We highly recommend that you try to come before the summer holidays as we get very busy in September when the shop re-opens before term.

When doing a fitting we do allow for growth but are happy to exchange items assuming it has not been named and is returned in the same condition it was purchased.
