Return Locations

Exchanges and returns of merchandise, whether purchased online or in-store can only be returned to the Uniform Shop only.

Special Exceptions

In the interest of hygiene, health reasons and for your protection, please choose carefully as we do not offer exchanges or refunds on the purchase of hats and hair accessories unless exhibiting a genuine manufacturing fault, or where otherwise required by law.

Exchanges and refunds do not apply to second hand items or discounted goods.


Sale of Second Hand Goods Policy

As a further resource and option for parents in relation to school uniforms, the uniform shop offers second hand uniforms for sale. Parents purchasing second hand uniforms benefit from the reduced costs as do those keen to pass on uniforms that have been outgrown. The takings from the second hand uniform sales contribute directly to P&C fund raising activities. Under certain circumstances and at the discretion of the Uniform Shop manager, an appointment can be made to view and purchase second hand items due to space constraints in the Uniform Shop.

The uniform shop will accept donations of second hand uniforms from families for resale at reduced prices.

All items donated must be in excellent condition and freshly laundered. Items must match stock currently being sold by the uniform shop and comply with the uniform requirements set by the school including the colour and design of fabrics.

Acceptance of goods is at the discretion of the uniform shop manager.

Parents are requested to remove any name tags prior to donation to prevent there being any confusion over ownership after the sale.

All purchases of second hand uniforms are strictly cash only. No refunds or exchanges are offered for second hand uniforms.

We do this to ensure all orders collected are secure. If you need someone else to collect on your behalf, please ensure you specify the person to collect in your order or an authorization letter or a copy of the tax invoice must be presented at collection before we release the items. All items must be collected within 4 weeks of the “order completed and ready for collection” email is sent.
