We raise over £2,000 a year for the school as well as help parents manage round-year school uniform provision for their boys (including spares and replacements). Trading Post is a great way for you to help the school, save the planet, and snap up a really good school uniform bargain, all in one!
This sale is reserved for new intake 2018 boys only. This will be your opportunity to buy pre-owned blazers, uniform and sports kit at a significantly reduced price. As we hold limited stock please do consult the Tiffin School Shop for all NEW items that they have available. (The next sale will be in October/November 2018 and is open to all pupils and parents)
Our dedicated parent-volunteers organise upcoming Trading Post Sales. These take place twice a year on a Saturday morning:
When: October/November (all boys)
April/May (new intake Yr7 and current yr10 boys only)
Where: Elmfield Building (Rooms 64/66 in the same building as the school shop)
Starts: 10am with last admission at 10.40am (subject to change)
You are also welcome to contact us in-between times. If you need a blazer, our blazer manager will try and arrange a convenient date and time for you to visit her at her home to make your purchase.

If you are wondering how you can help? Donating uniform is a great help in itself and very much appreciated. Without your donation we would not have a sale!
In preparation of the sales we are looking for nimble fingers/sewing bees out there that can volunteer their skill and time to repair donated blazers (patches on elbows/repairing
pockets/cuffs). Please contact the Blazer Manager for more information.
We also need volunteers on the day to help with the sales and an email request will be sent out closer to the time of the sale. Please contact the Sales Coordinator if you are interested in helping on the day.

We are relying on donations of uniform items* that your son has grown out of (putting a Tiffin-shaped dent in the 700,000 tonnes of recyclable textiles that are landfilled in the UK each year).
*Please do not donate old style rugby tops or old style PE/rugby shorts though.
Just bag up your son's clean, wearable, outgrown items and bring them to the School Office (even better, get your son to hand it in instead!). Alternatively you can bring them along to any of our Sales. We particularly need striped blazers and games kit, as they are very much in demand. However all items, barring the few exceptions italicised above, are welcome.
Note: Striped blazers with worn-out elbows, pockets or cuffs are repairable, and really worn/torn blazers are used for patches, so do hand these in. We can put all striped blazers to good use!
