Dear Parents and carers

John Cabot Academy
Full Year 7-10 Uniform List

You will be aware that we will have a new uniform in September 2017 for students in Years 7-10.  Your child may also have informed you that we will have a new school logo, which you can see on the top right of this letter.

Year 11 students are also welcome to wear our new uniform if they wish, though it must be worn in its entirety if this is the case.

In this letter, we are writing to explain how to purchase John Cabot Academy uniform for the school year 2017/18.  Information regarding our uniform arrangements can be found on our website in the ‘uniform’ section.

Our school uniform brochure has been provided by Trutex, who are the school’s supplier and who have committed to stocking our school uniform throughout the year.

School Uniform Information

The inside of our brochure details our school’s uniform policy, price of uniform and sizes that are available.  In addition, it details non school specific items which are also available to purchase through Trutex Direct.

Ordering Process

We know that many parents prefer to order online – this service is available from Trutex Direct.  Log onto www.trutexdirect.com and register using our Academy’s LEA code: LEA00918CH.  This will take you to John Cabot Academy’s uniform page, where you can see all items of our school uniform.  The site is secure and orders can be placed quickly and safely, direct with Trutex.  Alternatively, you can order from Trutex Direct by phone, call 01200 421206.

Delivery

School uniform is available from Trutex all year round.  Postage and packaging is free on orders over £50 or just £3.50 for orders under this amount.  Trutex also offer a free returns service.

Trutex deliver directly to your home or a specified delivery address.  Trutex will normally deliver within 7 working days.  However, during the busiest time towards the start of back to school this can be extended. We seriously recommend that you place your order for the new school year before 4 August to ensure delivery.

Whilst every effort will be made to satisfy all orders, Trutex cannot guarantee delivery after this date.

We hope that you will find the service both easy to use and convenient.

Yours sincerely

 

SIMON WHITE
PRINCIPAL
