 Second Hand Uniform

During term time please contact Mrs Ball on Reception, for enquiries about second hand uniform. At other times please get in touch with Mrs Burch, Assistant Headteacher.

We welcome donations of good quality second hand uniform (donated skirts should be the pleated style only) and these can be dropped off at Reception. Please wash items before donating. Any monies received for second hand uniform items are used to support current fundraising projects.

All items are 50p or £1, with blazers at £5. We accept cash or cheques.

We have a particular abundance of boys shirts and trousers - all good brands - so do please think of purchasing these from us too rather than from high street stores. Whilst we introduced a new logo in 2019 we are still happy for students to wear items with the old logo if there is life in the clothes!

Come and grab a bargain! #secondhanduniform #preloved #sustainability

Additionally, Banbury Uniform Exchange, based at Hanwell Fields Community Centre receives and distributes second-hand uniform free of charge. Click on the link or find them on Facebook to find out more.
