Exchanging sizes

When you collect uniform, you must keep the tags in place and save all packaging and hangers in case items need exchanging. 

If you need to exchange any items, please email uniform@chs-tkat.org
In the email, you need to confirm your child’s name, any item, the current size, and the size you need to exchange it for. 

Once the exchange items are ready for you to collect you will receive an email from us. 

....................

We apologise for any inconvenience that you may have experienced recently.

We have had to move all the stock out of the shop into the school as the roof on the uniform shop is now unsafe and leaking and is due to be replaced over the summer holidays. 

Thank you for your patience.


Due to circumstances beyond our control, students are requested to collect their pre-ordered uniform from H6 as the uniform shop is closed until further notice.

All uniform needs to be pre-ordered through ParentMail and you will receive notification as to when it is ready to collect from H6.

If you are unable to order by ParentMail, please complete a uniform order form and ask your child to put it in the finance box by main reception.  Please ensure you include a contact number as you will be rung when your order is ready for collection from H6.

If you find the uniform does not fit, please return it, unused with all the tags attached and we will replace with the correct size.

If you have any questions, please contact the school directly on 01243 787014 or email here 

Kind regards,

School Office
