We have a friendly uniform shop here at the school which is run for the benefit of the students and parents, and we make a real effort to keep the prices as low as possible.  

It is open every Friday during term time, and parents of current students can also buy uniform online via their Wisepay account.  If you order uniform online during term time by midnight Wednesday, it should be available in the shop the following Friday.  Please make sure you have an up to date email in your Wisepay account so we can contact you if there are any issues.
