Second-hand Uniform Scheme

We know that uniforms can be an expensive requirement for our families and, with this in mind, we want to help our school community by making good-quality second-hand uniforms easily available to everyone by introducing a second-hand uniform scheme.

Many items of uniform have a longer life beyond the point when our pupils have outgrown them and could be re-used by another pupil. As well as saving families money, reusing uniform also reduces our impact on the environment.

To make this possible we are requesting donations of second-hand items if they have been outgrown or are unwanted.

Please donate items that are:Unfortunately, we cannot accept items that are:
  • In good condition
  • Clean
  • Branded items (with the most recent school logo)
  • Non-branded items (e.g. plain polo shirts, trousers, PE t-shirts etc.)


  • Damaged beyond repair
  • Dirty / Unwashed
  • With the old School Logo

Uniform that is in the Lost Property and is unnamed and unclaimed by the end of the academic year will be considered second hand uniform.

This event will be held after each half term with definite dates being confirmed nearer the time.

With the continued rise in household costs, we hope this initiative can make a small difference by helping some of our families to access free uniforms.
