The Loretto Uniform Exchange.
As the new School year gets underway, may we remind pupils and parents about the Loretto Uniform Exchange - a fantastic resource run by parent volunteers where good quality, regulation Loretto uniform can be bought and sold for around 50% of new price.
So if you are in need of uniform items, why not pop in to see our stock (see opening times below) or check before you visit by downloading the latest Stock List from the Loretto website.
We sell all current, regulation school clothing plus sports clothing, sports footwear and equipment including items such as hockey and lacrosse sticks, shin guards, rugby padding and scrum caps, cricket gear and some great quality boots for the coming rugby and lacrosse seasons in sizes ranging from 2 to 12. We even have a karate suit and acoustic guitar!
Also, following the closure of the Schoolblazer shop, we have agreed to stock a small range of their new items on behalf of the School (gumshields, games socks, kilt socks, ties, cravats and games bags).
Equally, if you are clearing out outgrown but good quality items, or non-regulation items, please remember about us!
We ask that all uniform brought to us is CLEAN and in a saleable condition (we do NOT wash or repair but do have some spare buttons).
For accepted items, you'll get 50% of sale price back, with the other 50% being invested back into school projects.
Anything which is non-regulation, un-saleable (marked or damaged) or which remains in stock over three years will be recycled or donated to charity unless collected.
Non-regulation sports items are collected by SOS Kit Aid, an organisation that recycles sports kit for the benefit of young people in the UK and overseas. Non-branded or un-saleable items are recycled through local charities or Cash4Clothes.
Drop off your items at Schoolhouse Reception or at the Uniform Exchange Shop during our opening hours which, for the Autumn Term, are:
Monday 7:30am - 10:30am and 4pm - 6pm
Thursday 1pm - 3pm

And on the following Saturdays from 12pm-2pm:

We look forward to seeing you soon!
