Items of school uniform can be purchased from ‘Needles’, which is based on the Henmore Trading Estate, Ashbourne, DE6 1AS. A detailed uniform price list and order form can be viewed here.

All items of school wear, not just the above, should have a woven name label, as indelible ink wears off quickly with washing.
