The School’s second hand uniform shop, Uniform Exchange, is run by volunteers who have children in the School. It aims to sell on good quality, clean, regulation uniform at approximately half the new price. Of this, 25% will be divided between the Senior School, Preparatory School and the Pre-Preparatory School Parents’ Associations and the rest to the supplier.
The Uniform Exchange has moved from the Prep School and can now be found in the Old Police Station on Old Station Road The Crescent, Bromsgrove, B60 2DF.

What do we sell?
We sell all current, regulation school and sports clothing, sports footwear, books and equipment listed on the Uniform Lists including items such as kitbags, tuck boxes, trunks, hockey sticks/gloves, cricket bats/helmets/pads, tennis racquets, shin guards and rugby padding/scrum caps. We also keep some ATMA karate suits for the Prep Friday activity session. 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).
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. In particular:
Blouses/trousers should be regulation Trutex and in very good condition (please check collars, cuffs, pockets and underarms).
Trainers, astro/football/rugby boots and athletics/cross-country spikes should be cleaned and have all studs/spikes.
What do you have to do?
All items should be bagged with a label in or securely attached to the bag (individual items do not need to be labelled).
Labels must show the name to whom cheques should be made payable and an address to where cheques should be sent (we are unable to make cash payments and cheques will be payable in Sterling).
Don’t forget, it sometimes takes a few years before something is sold, and your child may no longer be a pupil at the school. It is also important to inform us of any change of address.
If cheques are to be paid to a student we need authority from a parent and the pupil must have a UK bank account.
Labelling slips can be obtained from the website (click on the link on the left hand side) or from the Uniform Exchange directly.
Labelled bags can be brought into the Uniform Exchange when open, or can be left at the School Shop, Prep or Pre-Prep reception, or at the Gatehouse at the South Car Park (Senior School).
When are we open?
We are open every Monday from 4pm to 5pm during term time, on the first Saturday of every month from 9.30am-12.30pm, and at other times during the holiday periods. Dates will be posted in advance on the website and should also appear on the School Calendar
