School Uniform Shop Opening Hours (Term-Time Only)
Summer Opening Hours:
The Uniform Shop will be open from the 24th - 28th August 2020 within the summer holiday, 9am to 3pm in the school gym.
In light of Covid-19 arrangements will be made to limit the numbers within the shop due to social-distancing requirements with 1 adult to accompany the student.
Unfortunately the pre-ordered school jumpers will NOT be available to collect during this week but will now be available to give to students on their return to St Edmund's. This delay is beyond the school's control.
The closing date for submission of pre-orders has now ended. Anyone who has submitted a pre-order can collect this when the shop opens between the 24th and 28th August. Anyone who has not submitted a pre-order can just turn up to the school uniform shop and select the items required then take to the payment desk.
Payment will be by card only. No cash can be accepted.
Alternatively please visit our dual supplier who are open daily:
PA School and Sportswear (Penelope Ann)
34-36 Tangier Road, Copnor, Portsmouth, PO3 6RB.

Use of Bursary
The bursary money for 2019-2020 academic year for those eligible for Free School Meals has now ended (deadline was the 29th June 2020).
As a public funded organisation the school is accountable for the money and must be able to demonstrate proof of expenditure via a receipt. I am aware that some support has already been given to parents via their bursary.
For this academic year we increased the bursary to £110. (This money cannot be given directly to parents) but spent in school at the request of parents. However, if the technology or building fund has not been paid for this academic year this will be deducted from the bursary.
For example, the bursary could be used for:
- Contribute towards the cost of uniform.
- Supplement the cost of a school trip.
- Pay for specific school related resources.
- Pay for work experience (Year 10 only).
- Go towards paying the school building fund or technology.
- Contribution towards music tuition.
- Other agreed expenditure.
Please note that the bursary cannot be carried forward to the next academic year.
For those eligible for a bursary for the next academic year the Head will write to families usually around the middle of September once the funding has been received.
In exceptional circumstances if you need assistance in purchasing uniform for the next academic year as the bursary has now ended please write a letter addressed to Mr Graham, Headteacher, outlining a reason behind your request and the items you would to purchase.
