SCHOOL UNIFORM PURCHASE

Please note: Langtree School are aware that there is a bill to be debated in government in March 2020 aimed at allowing more flexibility for parents to purchase uniform from wider outlets other than those recommended by the school.
Until the outcome of this debate is known and made legislative, we require that uniform for Langtree School continues to be purchased through our existing supplier (please see details above).
We wish to re-iterate that Langtree School do not make any profit from the uniform that is sold through these outlets and that the intention behind this practice is to create a uniformity to school wear for students.
As always, financial help may be available with uniform for those on a low income. There is also a reasonable selection of good quality second hand uniform available at the school office for which we ask for a small donation.
