As you are aware we have recently been tendering for a uniform supplier. We are pleased to announce that Shepperton Sports was successful and will be our new uniform supplier from Saturday 28th March. They will have a limited supply until the handover from UK Uniform (Molesey) is complete. They are located in Shepperton High Street and will provide a ‘one stop shop’ for students and families at Thamesmead School. Uniform items can be purchased by going into the shop, contacting them by phone or online. Full details of their new online provision will be announced on their website very soon. Price lists for uniform will be provided after Easter.
As well as the full range of school uniform they will supply our new Thamesmead school skirt. The new school skirt will be compulsory for girls in Years 7-10 from September 2015 and compulsory for all girls from September 2016 (unless they wish to wear school trousers). The girls voted for the design with the red piping and this will be available in a choice of waist styles: elasticated at the back or with hidden adjusters. The fabric is high quality ‘Teflon’ treated and feedback from other schools suggests girls should only need one skirt at a time and it will last for longer. We also hope to work with the PTA to develop a second-hand uniform service as time goes on.
The skirt will cost between £17 and £20, depending on the size. However, Shepperton Sports are offering a £5 discount for girls currently at Thamesmead who order their new skirt before the end of June. We will publish full details of how to redeem this offer after Easter and would like to thank Shepperton Sports for this promotion.
