Friends of St Edmund's Second Hand Uniform Shop

The parent PTA have set up a second hand uniform shop and will be available during the transition evening on the 1st July 2024 in the school gym.

Friends of St Edmunds PTA, Uniform Exchange Mission

Established in September 2022, the Uniform Exchange’s mission is to provide nearly new school uniform, PE Kits and other school essentials to any St Edmund’s Student.

This project encourages students as well as families to consider the needs of others and the environment. This project highlights the social implications of disguarding good school uniforms to landfill, when others are able to make use of it.

Families are encouraged to donate any uniform to St Edmund’s Catholic School Reception, where it is organised by a dedicated team of PTA volunteers, for in school uniform sales. Any surplus uniform is then redistributed to other Portsmouth based charities.

The Uniform Exchange also offers a ‘Swap Shop’ option whereby you are able to swap a like for like item for a different size.  Please follow our Facebook page for dates on the next uniform sale.
