Bromsgrove School

Ex-changing Room

Ex-changing Room can be found in the Music School building on the Preparatory campus approximately 5 minutes walk from the School shop, or by driving through the rear entrance of the Preparatory School (off Conway Road past the Health Centre) and parking in the Music School car park or outside the Llanwrtyd Wells Centre.

What do we sell?

We sell all current, regulation school and sports clothing, sports footwear, books and equipment listed on the Uniform Lists including items such as kitbags, tuck boxes, trunks, hockey sticks/gloves, cricket bats/helmets/pads, tennis racquets, shin guards and rugby padding/scrum caps. We also keep some ATMA karate suits for the Prep Friday activity session. We ask that all uniform brought to us is CLEAN and in a saleable condition (we do NOT wash or repair but do have some spare buttons).

Anything which is non-regulation, un-saleable (marked or damaged) or which remains in stock over three years will be recycled or donated to charity. In particular:

  • Blouses/trousers should be regulation Trutex and in very good condition (please check collars, cuffs, pockets and underarms). WE NO LONGER ACCEPT BOYS SHIRTS;
  • Trainers, astro/football/rugby boots and athletics/cross-country spikes should be cleaned and have all studs/spikes.

What do you have to do?

All items should be bagged with a label in or securely attached to the bag (individual items do not need to be labelled). Labels must show the name to whom cheques should be made payable and an address to where cheques should be sent (we are unable to make cash payments and cheques will be payable in Sterling). Don’t forget, it sometimes takes a few years before something is sold, and your child may no longer be a pupil at the school. It is also important to inform us of any change of address. If cheques are to be paid to a student we need authority from a parent and the pupil must have a UK bank account. Labelling slips can be obtained from the website (click on the link below), from Ex-changing Room, or from the School Shop or Prep reception (both of whom are happy to take bagged and labelled items on our behalf).

Labelled bags may also be left in the gatehouse at South car park.

When are we open?

We are open on the first Saturday of every month from 9.30 am to 12 noon and the first Wednesday of every month from 3.30 to 5.15pm in term time, and at other times during open days and holidays. Dates will be posted in advance on the website (click on the link below) and should also appear in the White Diary. We can also open by appointment in special circumstances. We can only accept payment for uniform by cash or cheque.

How can you help?

Ex-changing Room always needs volunteers. It needn’t take up too much of your time and is an excellent way to meet other parents.
