The School uniform has to be obtained from the school shop on site at St. Catherine’s School. It is situated in the Business Centre and can be accessed via a path to the left of the Business Centre building.
From Monday 17th of January the School Shop will be open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 1pm to 5pm. We no longer require booking an appointment to visit the School Shop, however we ask parents to wear masks when visiting the Shop. The School Shop is not open during half term, Christmas and Easter breaks.
We suggest collection if you need just a few items - please send your order requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch with you to discuss your order in more detail, take the payment and arrange the time for the collection. Items can always be exchanged if not worn and returned in original packaging
If you need to purchase a larger number of items we suggest booking an appointment.
Boarders’ parents may contact the School shop by email, or give their daughter’s housemistress permission to sign off requests for items which can be purchased at the shop and then be charged to their termly accounts.
You can buy, sell or donate St. Catherine's senior and prep school uniform, sportswear, dance wear, school and sports bags, lacrosse sticks, lacrosse goggles, boots, trainers and more via the PTA Second Hand Uniform Shop.
Prep uniform - Tuesdays 8.30-9.30 and Fridays 2.30-3.30
Senior uniform - Wednesdays 8-10 and Fridays 3.30-5
The shop is also open on selected dates during the summer holidays which will be advertised at the end of the summer term.
The shop maintains Covid safe guidelines and we request the use of masks and hand sanitiser. In addition the number of people in the shop must be limited due to restricted space, and we therefore ask that only one parent attend with their daughter for purchasing uniform.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque, or card (Prep school only), and unfortunately exchanges/refunds are not possible.
We always appreciate the help of parents in running all aspects of the shop/retail assistants/stock control/pricing/spreadsheets/communications/ – please do get in touch by email if you can offer some time to help out and join the team.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our much loved service.
Prep school - selling & Donating items
You can leave items in the weatherproof box outside the shop or in the shop during opening hours. Collections will be arranged once or twice a year outside the Prep School and these will be advertised by Clarion.
Should you wish to sell items through the shop and receive 60% of sale proceeds please leave a note inside each bag of items, detailing the following:
- Your name, phone number, e-mail address and postal address
- Your daughter’s name
If you wish to donate 100% of the sale proceeds to the PTA, you do not need to leave any of the above information.
If you leave a bag without any contact information included, we will assume this is a PTA donation.
For all items, please ensure you comply with the conditions of sale (see below).
Cheques are usually issued twice a year, and only where sales in the year have generated proceeds due to parents of more than £20. Sales below this amount will be donated to the PTA after one year. Please let us know of any changes to contact details so we can ensure cheques are sent to the correct address.
If items do not sell within 1 year from the date of donation, the proceeds become 100% to the PTA.

- Tights or socks (except ballet and dance socks)
