We have been contacted today by Penelope Anne (one of our uniform stockists) to inform us that there have been difficulties obtaining stock of some uniform items, especially the polo shirts. Penelope Anne have informed us that they have provided the old uniform free of charge to help families who ordered uniform that has not yet arrived.
Additionally, we have been informed by Hargreaves Promotions (our other uniform stockists) that as a result of the increase demand, they have run out of stock of some items this week.
I wanted to assure parents that staff will understand that some students may not yet have been able to obtain the new uniform and that it will be acceptable for students to wear the old uniform until they are able to obtain their new polo shirts in their house colours.
I am sorry that we have not been able to secure a smooth transition to our new uniform for you this summer and apologise for any worry this may have caused to your son/daughter. I will keep you updated as we receive more information from both our uniform stockists.
