Parents’ Association

We are lucky to have an active Parents’ Association involved in both RGS and RGS Prep. Our parents’ associations organise fundraising and social activities on behalf of the School including secondhand uniform sales. Details of events organised by the Parents’ Association are shared with parents on a regular basis.

Secondhand Uniform Sales (SHUGS) - Senior

The SHUGS store is open on the first Monday and Saturday morning following the first day of every term and half-term. An annual sale is also held which is timed to benefit parents attending New Students’ Reception Afternoon but is also open to current parents.  All funds raised support the School.  We always welcome more stock!

SHUGS Secondhand Uniform Sales

What are the terms and conditions?

  • Commission on all sales is 35%.  All our proceeds go to the RGSPA to be used for the benefit of the students and the wider school community.
  • We aim to reimburse sellers after each sale. When the payment is under £10, we make payment by cash and sellers will receive an email or message through Classlist to pick up the cash from school reception.
  • It will be available for collection at reception for one week. If not collected within this time, it will be treated as a donation to SHUGS.
    You may ask your son to collect the cash on your behalf.
  • Any payment over £10 will be made electronically and we will invite sellers to provide bank details for payment credit.  Sellers will receive an email when a payment is to be made.
  • Sellers are required to fill in all the information on the seller labels clearly and neatly.
  • SHUGS can only contact sellers through the information provided on the label.
  • If attempts to contact are unsuccessful, the monies will be treated as a donation to SHUGS.
  • Any personal data relating to sellers gathered by SHUGS on the label will only be used to contact sellers for reimbursement purposes.

Have nearly new uniform to donate?

If you would like to donate your nearly new school uniform you do not need to label your donation bags.

Quality control

All items accepted for sale must be: 

  • Freshly washed and ironed
  • Name tape and name badges removed
  • Have all buttons and neat hems
  • No ink stains or paint splatters and no holes.

We are afraid that the RGSPA is under no obligation to sell anything if clothing is not of sufficient quality.  The RGSPA will recycle any items deemed of poor quality.

What items can't I sell?

We are unable to accept any footwear, trousers, socks, underwear; or sports equipment.

Where can I drop off items?

Items for sale can be dropped off at the School Office at any time.

What happens to items that do not sell?

We will try to sell your items for 12 months.  The label proforma asks you to state the month and year that you submit the items so that we can ensure that they are offered for sale for a full year.  Any items that remain unsold in our stock at the end of the year will automatically become SHUGS stock and if subsequently sold, the funds will be donated to the RGSPA.
