For Information:

Nearly New Uniform - we no longer hold a stock of second-hand uniform however the Schoolwear Centre in Margate now maintains a 'bank' of donated blazers, jumpers and skirts. The Uniform Bank can be accessed from their website: where you can search and pay for items under CCGS Preloved Uniform.

Parent/carers can either donate items direct to the Schoolwear Centre or bring them into any of our School Receptions for us to pass on.

Please note that the bank does not stock PE items. Our PE Department keeps a small stock of donated items which students can use.
