The Second-hand Uniform Shop is located beside the Uniform and College Shop, next to the Normans Road carpark.

The Second-hand Uniform Shop's normal hours during term time are Tuesday and Thursday from 3.00pm to 4.30pm.

Second-hand uniform to be sold on behalf of, or for donation, can be dropped off at the Second-hand Uniform Shop during opening hours. Outside of these days/hours, you can drop off items at the Uniform and College Shop.

Items to be sold on your behalf

The following items of second-hand uniform can be sold on your behalf (unless you prefer to donate them), with you receiving 70% of the proceeds (the PTA retains 30%, which is donated to the College):

  • blazers;
  • jerseys, cardigans, vests;
  • charcoal trousers and shorts (not black);
  • girls blouses;
  • pinafores and skirts;
  • tracksuits.

Items to be sold on your behalf must be given to the shop in a bag and be clearly labelled with your:

  • full name;
  • address, including postcode;
  • phone number;
  • email address;

All items must be laundered / dry cleaned prior to sale.

If an item is not sold after two years it will become a donated item, with all proceeds going to the PTA.

All other items of uniform, such as shirts, ties and sports items, are gratefully received as donated items to sell.

The PTA reserves the right to decline and/or dispose of any items that are not suitable for sale without advising the owner.

Second-hand Uniform Shop – Volunteers Required

We would love helpers to assist in the shop selling uniforms on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3.00pm to 4.30pm during term time. You can choose to do as many or as few days as you like.
