Stevensons updates
With current social distancing restrictions likely to have a continued impact in the flow of customers through the shop over the summer period, we may have to revise our operations to maintain a safe and efficient customer service experience. So we can update you on any changes we may need to make, please register an account on the Stevensons website stevensons.co.uk if you don’t already have one. This will allow the Uniform Shop to legally contact you to alert you to any unplanned changes.

Location

The on-site shop is located on Chalker’s Lane, next to the Dance and Drama studios (opposite the Prep School). There are reserved parking spaces for customers.

Named Clothing

Senior School
All clothing, including casual clothes and footwear, should be clearly marked with your child’s name. Please note that certain items of games kit should be embroidered on the front with your child’s initials. The embroidery service is available at the Uniform Shop, but please note that this may take a few days for items to be completed. House abbreviations, for inclusion on name tapes, can be found in the Senior School Parents Handbook.

Prep School
All items, including footwear, must be clearly marked with your child’s name by a name label or laundry marker. Please ensure all such labels are sewn FLAT and not just on the ends. Prep School regulation PE and games kit purchased from the Uniform Shop should be embroidered with your child’s initials at a nominal charge.

The Hurst Foundation runs a Second Hand Uniform Shop to raise funds which will directly benefit the pupils.

The shop is located behind the main uniform shop – take the path that runs to the right hand side of the main uniform shop (through the gate), then turn left through the green gates and the shop is on the right.

Current uniform for sale can be brought to the shop when it is open or left at any other time with the Lodge. All uniform should be clean and in good condition. In popular demand are blazers and sports kit, especially house shirts. Sports equipment such as cricket pads and body armour can also be taken in. Everything should be clearly labelled with the seller’s name and address and should also include a self-addressed stamped envelope so that payment can be sent. 50% of the proceeds go to the seller and 50% to the Hurst Foundation funds.
