THE NEARLY NEW SHOP
WESSEX BUILDING, SENIOR SCHOOL SITE
The nearly new uniform shop is run by a team of parents with sales of nearly new uniform and games kit being held throughout the year. The sales include all current uniform requirements for the Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior Schools, with the full range being sold in most sizes. Most years during the winter months, selected sales also include excellent quality adult and children's ski wear.
You can donate or sell items through KES Nearly New. If you choose to sell your item, KES Parents will arrange for you to receive 50% of the sale price once sold (refunded to your school account), with the remaining 50% being contributed to the KES Parents' funds. This money is then allocated to projects that help provide those very special 'extras' for pupils across all three schools. Donated items are gratefully received and 100% of such sales are contributed towards the KES Parents' fund.
The shop relies on the generosity of parent volunteers to manage and run the sales, with parents giving just two hours of their time when they can. In return you will meet other parents, enjoy the friendly chat and banter and drink as much tea and coffee as you like!
More information is included below, but if you have any further questions about the sales, or would like to volunteer, simply turn up at one of the sales or contact Justine and the rest of the Nearly New team on: [email protected]
Term-time Opening Hours will be communicated by email, and also on the school and KES Parents Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds. The published calendar found at the top of this page is also regularly updated.
We are particularly short of the following items:
- KES tracksuit bottoms aged 14+
- KES rugby shirts sized 36" and above
- KES hoodies aged 14+
- Adidas KES sports kit, any size
Donations of KES uniform can only be accepted when the store is open. Clothes should be in good, clean condition: essentially, if you would be happy to buy it yourself in the condition in which you donate it, we will be happy to sell it!
Details about how to label your clothes for sale can be found further below or if you wish to donate items, (a big thank you), we’ll sort out the labels for you.
The Nearly New Shop has taken more than ever this year – thanks to you. Please keep supporting us both with your children’s outgrown clothes and your custom. The contribution to the Parents’ Committee Fund is significant, which has helped to fund some amazing projects within the School community.
