The Parents’ Guild Shop is run by friendly parent volunteers and stocks clean, good quality pre-loved uniform and sports kit for the Prep School and Upper School. Items are usually approximately half the cost of new and sellers may choose to receive up to 50% of the proceeds (paid annually).  

What we sell

The Nearly New Shop is something of an Aladdin’s Cave.  From blazers and winter coats, to cricket bats, rugby boots and cricket jumpers, if there is anything you need, we are likely to have it in stock.  If it is not on the list, then please ask.  Many items are in excellent condition and are half the cost of new.  Those items that do not meet our highest standards are even cheaper.  We are currently opening the shop on a limited number of days this term and you will need to make an appointment in advance.  These dates, along with instructions on how to order items and book your appointment,  will be sent out in the school’s weekly parent newsletters.  

DONATIONS

If you have surplus sportswear, specifically cricket wear, in good condition, that you would like the shop to sell on your behalf, drop-off ‘bins’ will be placed in the Upper School and the Prep School later this term (dates to be confirmed).  Prior to dropping off your items, please ensure that you have completed a seller’s information form and each item is labelled. Full details can be found in the sellers pack. If you are donating items, please parcel them up in a plastic bag and drop them in the donation bins on this date (no paperwork is required).

If you feel able, please consider donating your unwanted items of school uniform and equipment to the Nearly New Shop.  That way, all of the sale proceeds go towards supporting projects in the School.

Location

The Nearly New Shop is located on Burnaby Road just before the School gates.  Until further notice, visits to the shop are by appointment only, by request to guildshop@bedfordschool.org.uk.
