After the Easter holiday, the School Shop will be operating from a new location upstairs in the Cairns Centre, which is accessed via the Sports Entrance at the Senior School, located on the left-hand side of the road. The new arrangement will allow the School Shop and FOGS Second Hand Uniform to be collocated in the same building, making access to either or both options much easier for parents.
The new shop floor should be more welcoming, comfortable and easier to navigate, which, combined with streamlining of stock management, should make the shopping experience far better for parents and pupils. A new online portal will be available at some point during the first half of the Summer Term, providing parents the option of buying online and collecting (or arranging for their children to collect) from the shop or House at school.
More details about this will be sent out next Term after the final checks have been carried out with the new system, but we hope this will be a welcome addition to uniform purchasing options. Arrangements for the traditionally busy ‘back-to-school’ period, late in the Summer Term and Summer Holiday period, will also be sent out during the Summer Term, but we certainly wish to encourage as many parents as possible to get ahead of the crowd, avoid the bottlenecks which occur at the end of the summer holiday, and try to complete these purchases for autumn early.
Miranda, Sarah and Tracy will be keen to see you in their new location, so do pop in when you can to meet them after the Easter break and let them guide you through any uniform or kit purchases you need to make or plan.
