Reducing the cost of school uniform this September


We've had many queries from proactive parents lately who are preparing to sort out uniforms for September. So we thought we'd prepare a post to assist those with queries about where to find cheaper/second-hand uniform.

Cornwall Council does not provide a grant towards school uniforms. 


  • Contact your local school; they should have a second-hand uniform for sale at a discounted cost, usually from the office.
  • Many local schools also host second-hand uniform sales throughout the year.

  • Join these selling pages on Facebook:
