Uniform Update

Update w/c 15/09/2014

  • Polo shirts
  • Blazers

These items are now available from the School Shop (open before school/break and lunch) 

Update 1

Cheatles Schoolwear went into administration in April 2014 and was later taken over by a number  of Cheatles Directors under the name of Newplan Solutions.  Due to the time of year, when it would have been difficult to find an alternative supplier, and with their assurances that it would be ‘business as usual’, we made the decision to continue with the new Company.

We were not aware until last Tuesday that they could not meet the demand for uniform, which we were told was due to their supplier not fulfilling the orders.

It was decided that as we would not be able to obtain the uniform elsewhere, that the dress code of those students affected for compulsory items would be relaxed in the short term:

Outerwear:       Blazer or UCC jumper or dark(preferably black), plain jumper

PE Kit:              Plain, white t.shirt

                        Plain, dark sports top

We were pleased to see that the majority of parents followed this request and everyone looked smart on the first day, despite the problems.  We understand that some of the pre-ordered uniform has now been delivered, although there is still a delay with other items.  The alternatives above can be worn until your order is completed.

We hope to know more about the situation later this week and will keep you updated.  For those who haven’t pre-ordered, we do have limited stock available in the school shop (open before school, break and lunchtime) for students to purchase items, if available, over the counter.

We apologise for any inconvenience and distress this may have caused and assure you that we are working closely with Cheatles to try to rectify the situation as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience.
