Payment should be made by credit or debit card, you do not need a Parent Pay account.
Once orders have been placed online, you will be notified by email when your order is ready for collection. This normally takes 2 to 3 days, unless your order is placed during the summer holiday, when response times will be up to 5 working days. (See click and collect letter below for more details on when you can collect uniform)
During term time, the order will be given to your child to take home. If items are out of stock, we will contact you by email to let you know the date we expect to fulfil your order. For pupils starting mid-year, you will be given a time to collect your items. To collect items, you should come to the Main Reception.
Returns are accepted as long as the uniform item hasn’t been worn. Please note that returns will take at least 5 days to process.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
How do I get the right size of uniform? A full sizing guide is on the website, please use this. We have also found that when buying High School uniform, parents should check the size of blazer needed using the sizing guide and then buy a one size bigger for the jumper. So, if the blazer needed is 35 inches, the jumper should be 36 inches.
Can I return/exchange my uniform if it does not fit? Yes, returns will be accepted
Do I need a ParentPay account? Not to purchase uniform, you will be directed to our online shop and can pay by card. You will still need to create a ParentPay account however as we are a cashless academy. New starters will be given ParentPay details in September 21.
Can I pay by cash? No, to minimise the spread of the Covid virus, we will not be accepting any cash.
