The dark green sweatshirt and jumper can only be purchased via Tesco.  To place your order online go to  www.tesco.com

Currently (August 2017) prices for sweatshirts and jumpers start at £7.50 including the cost of the logo. You are also able to buy other items of Tesco school uniform, although the other items may also be purchased elsewhere.  If you do not have access to a computer or prefer not to order on line you can place your order by phone on 0845 4599 866, or you can order via Customer Services at Tesco stores.  Once your order is placed it takes up to two weeks to be delivered so please order in plenty of time. 

We do have limited number of sweatshirts and jumpers available to buy through school, these will be sold on a first come first served basis.  We also hold a small stock of large and extra large sweatshirts for pupils who need something bigger than age 15/16.

It is important that we have the cooperation of parents and carers to ensure that uniform is worn every day for school and is clean, tidy and in a good state of repair.  Like all other secondary schools we strictly enforce the uniform and if your child arrives for school not wearing uniform we will be contacting you to bring uniform to the school or to take your child home to change.  It is also important for pupils to bring PE kit to school on the days when PE is scheduled.

All items of uniform and other property should be clearly marked, either by sewing in name labels or writing your child’s name on a label inside the item.  Embroidered name labels are available from many suppliers including Woven Labels UK, September House, Wooden, Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, SA69 9DY (telephone 08470 748 6774).  Their web address is www.wovenlabelsuk.com   Each term we end up with large amounts of lost property, including sweatshirts, tee shirts and coats, please make sure we are able to return clothing and other items to the correct student by clearly labelling everything your child bring into school.
