    Delivery of orders

    To avoid incurring delivery costs to parents, all orders are delivered into school for collection. When the order is dispatched to school you will receive a text message from Schoolshop advising you of this.

    The only exception to this is for parents of pupils moving into Year 7 in September who ordered in school at the Year 6 parents evening events. These orders will be dispatched to home addresses free of charge.

    If an item is out of stock with Schoolshop, the order may be dispatched in parts or held until all items are available. Again, Schoolshop will send text messages to confirm dispatch and collection from school.

    During the summer holidays orders will be dispatched to school on two occasions only. Therefore uniform will only be available for collection from school on the following two days:

    Wednesday 15th August between 9am – 3pm


    Monday 3rd September between 9am – 3pm
