Second Hand School Uniform Sales
We have a great range of donated school uniform which you can easily help yourself to. It's located in the cupboard just inside the school foyer. Great for when you need a jumper at short notice, because all their others have vanished!!
Please give a small donation into the school office for anything you take.
