CRGSA Second-Hand Uniform Shop
The CRGSA runs a good quality second-hand uniform shop on the school site. it is located towards the front of the school, left of the site manager's office, between the library and reception. Prices vary depending on quality but are always cheaper than buying new. Although we cannot process credit/debit card sales, we do accept cash and cheques (made payable to CRGSA shop). We are pleased to offer refunds / exchanges on any purchase subject to conditions.
The shop is open every term time Friday between 12.30 and 1.30pm as well as non-pupil days at the end of the summer term and beginning of the autumn term, Parent / Teacher Evenings, Autumn Fayre, New Year 7 Summer Induction Day and the Autumn Term Year 7 Social Evening.

- Wednesday 19th June (New Year 7 Evening)
- Tuesday 25th June (11+ Open Evening)

We stock most items of second hand uniform:
- Blazers, ties, jumpers, trousers, shirts, shoes and belts
- Rugby / Football kit: shirts, shorts, training tops and bottoms, under armour, shin pads, socks and boots
- PE kit: shirts, shorts and trainers
- Cricket kit: jumpers, shirts, trousers, shoes, gloves, pads and bats
- We also have a supply of coats and waterproofs, sports bags and rucksacks
All students and parents are welcome to pop in to buy, donate, browse or even volunteer. If your son does not enjoy the shopping experiance, bringing along his measurements (waist and inside leg, if intereseted in trousers) will make it a lot less painful!
When your son outgrows his uniform we will be happy to sell it on your behalf with a % of the price going to CRGSA funds. Items to be sold should be clean and in good condition please, clearly marked with the student's name and tutor group, parent's phone number and email address. If you are not sure what price to place on your items, the shop volunteers will price it for you.
If you would prefer to donate the uniform, please mark the items 'DONATED'. All the money raised will go to the CRGSA funds, which in turn purchases equipment for the school.
If you are unable to bring items to be sold into the shop during opening hours, they may be left in reception at any other time (clearly marked 'CRGSA shop', please).
We do hope that you will support the shop throughout your son's time at CRGS. All students and parents are welcome to pop in to buy, donate, browse or even volunteer. If you have any queries or are willing to help, please contact one of us. We are all parent volunteers and new helpers are always welcome.
Lost property is also stored at the shop, so if your child has mislaid anything, please encourage them to come and have a look.
