Our students are excellent ambassadors for the school, and show a sense of pride in being members of it. This sense of belonging is reflected in the wearing of school uniform, the details of which are in the links below.
Cross Embroidery – Important Information
All orders will be treated as first come, first served. We would encourage all parents and carers to place their order as soon as possible to ensure prompt delivery of uniforms. We cannot guarantee that orders placed during August, for example, will be fulfilled in time for the new term.
New Starter Appointments
Starting a new school is an exciting transition for all involved. Our aim is to provide a swift and stress-free experience for parents, carers and students. Having used an appointment system in 2021 we have found this allowed us to guide our customers more easily through the uniform purchasing process during a one-to-one fitting, ensuring you only buy what you need, allowing you to top-up later, as and when you require. We would like to offer new starters the opportunity to try on all required uniform within a 20 minute time slot, by appointment. We have set these appointments exclusively for students starting at new schools. We advise booking your appointment as soon as possible to ensure we are able to supply key items of uniform and to avoid any disappointment that may occur with orders placed after July.
Existing Student Appointments
For new school uniform for the beginning of September, we will be offering appointments to students in year 8 and above from July. You can also place a click and collect order via our website. However, when collecting your click and collect order, items must be taken off site and tried on at home.
In order to visit the store for a fitting, parents and carers must book in advance, via our online booking system.
Please book 1 appointment per child
As we approach the busy summer season, we would ask customers to make sure that time slots are not missed. Should you need to cancel and rebook your appointment, please contact us.
We accept returns and offer refunds if tags are kept on the items purchased and they are in a saleable condition.
Unfortunately, at the current time, there is no customer parking available. This is a temporary measure, taken to give customers a safe and distanced place to queue.

Labelling clothing and possessions
All items of school uniform, including shoes, trainers, PE kit and bags must be clearly named, to help us re-unite them with their owners when miss-placed.
We have recently introduced several initiatives to help with this:
- Order Stikins labels and the school receives fundraising commission on your purchase (quote code 4138) No sewing or ironing, suitable for clothing and personal items.
- Laundry pens now available from the Lost Property Office for 50p
- Easy2name labels have a wide selection of stick on, iron-on, and sew-on labels and transfers. We receive commission on sales – be sure to add ‘CHENDERIT SCHOOL OX17’ at the checkout.
