Uniform Swap Shop

The Gylemuir Uniform Swap Shop is now up and running.

We have created the Swap Shop to support families with the cost of school uniform and to reduce clothing waste. Most of the items are unnamed pieces which have not been claimed from Lost Property by the end of term, but we also welcome donations of uniform – coats, jumpers, trousers, polo shirts, etc – which your child no longer requires. We ask that these items are clean and in an acceptable condition, please.

Families are welcome to take what they need from the items on the rail located in the corridor next to the school library.
