Please be aware if your child is staring with us in September you must purchase uniform via our online shop and not ParentPay.  Your child will be allocated a ParentPay account when they start with us in September for all future purchases.

All purchases should be made through this process and ‘click and collect’ slots will be emailed to parents/carers for collection.
