Second Hand Uniform

At the start of a new academic year (September) and towards the end of the academic year (June) we will ask all children if they have any old school uniform they wish to donate that they no longer use. We kindly ask parents/carers to wash the uniform before donating any garments. Any second hand uniform can be handed into our Pastoral office (Emmaus).

If any parents/carers require any second hand uniform please contact Miss O’Hara, our Emmaus Manager (b.ohara@stjamescheadle.co.uk), to arrange collection of the garments. If you are able you may wish to make a small donation to our school charity.
