Parents can purchase uniform items from our own School Shop on site. We have one uniform all year round, based on practical colours and fabrics that allow boys to be boys.
This list includes all the items your son will need during his time at Woodcote; please keep it safe as you will need to refer to it at the beginning of each term. Please read the following notes and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
We have an excellent shop, run by Lucy Monk (email firstname.lastname@example.org), and all items on the list marked with an * asterix can be purchased, new or second hand. The shop is open before the start of each term and on Wednesday afternoons during term time. Appointments can be made at other times with prior arrangement.
All shoes must be in good repair and permanently marked with the boys’ school number (3rd Form upwards) or name if he is a Junior. Please ensure shoes are cleaned and polished on return from Exeats, Half Term and at the start of each Term.
All clothes must be in good repair and clearly marked with name tapes showing the boys’ full name. It is not necessary to have the school number on tapes. Please try clothes on before term starts. All new boys should bring three dozen sew-on name tapes to school. Please NO iron-on name tapes. Games clothes name tapes need to be purchased from www.wovenlabelsuk.com. They are listed as ID Tags and must be ordered as 1 inch in size, red text with a white background colourand should be ordered with surname first followed by first name. For example, ‘MONK WILLIAM’.
We provide string bags for all games kit. Tape loops must be sewn on all towels (long side please), flannels, sweaters and games clothes. For info, IKEA sell towels with hooks already sewn in.
NB: DAY BOYS All games kit will be sent home in the string bags at weekends for washing. Clean kit to be brought back in on a Monday morning.
