    Polite request for unwanted, good quality school uniform

    We would be really grateful if parents/carers could donate any unwanted, good quality school uniform to the school office.  We are always in need of uniform to support families in various circumstances and we would be happy to make these items available for a small donation.  

    We would also be most appreciative for donations of new pants (girls & boys), tights or socks, as there are times in school when children do need a fresh pair of these items and very often, school (for obvious reasons) does not receive these items back.

    Please see the full letter under the News & Letters section of our website.
