And, of course, Tesco continues to sell bits and pieces, generally at lower prices.

We will be donating all our old uniform to charity at the very beginning of next term. If you want to pass on garments, we can store them now, or can accept them on the first day of the September term. A couple of parents have asked if children must wear the new jumpers and cardigans. If you do not intend to buy new for September, please at least ensure your child has a plain white shirt. We will be giving all children free ties.
