Second Hand Uniform Provision.

Students who leave the academy are encouraged to donate unwanted branded blazers, jumpers, and kilts in good condition to the school to be re-purposed for younger year groups. 
Thanks to these kind donations from families, stock levels are dependant on availability, and therefore not all types of garment, or sizes, will be available.
We ask for a voluntary donation of £5 to cover the costs of running the provision.  Please ensure you know the type and size of garment you require before you arrive at the school, as we are unable to accommodate any trying on of items.
Returns are only acceptable on the day of collection.
Should you wish to take advantage of this provision, please contact the academy for further details and to arrange an appointment.
