Second hand uniform support
In order to support families, we are pleased to be able to share with you that we have made links with two charity shops in Chester-Le-Street, St Cuthbert’s Hospice and Age UK.
Both charity shops are willing to receive donations of school uniform that is still in a good condition, and that can be bought second-hand for future or existing students at our school. The shops themselves will set the prices for the different parts of the uniform, and all monies will go directly to both charities to support them in their important work.
If you do have any items of school uniform that your child no longer needs and you are happy to donate, please drop them into St Cuthbert’s Hospice and/or Age UK. We really want to support our families, local partnerships and charities.

Did you know?
Each of our school blazers save 46 plastic bottles from landfill! Our blazers are made with RE-VIVE fabric - an innovative, eco friendly material produced by Trutex.
Here’s how it works...
- Plastic bottles are shredded into ‘flakes’ and heated to make the material workable (known as the depolymerisation process).
- The flakes undergo further complex heating processes to form recycled chips which are then put through a special machine to form a fine polyester yarn which can then be woven into a durable fabric.
... and voilá, our school blazers are ready to be worn, helping to save the planet!
