Help with school uniform

Harrow High School has a stock of second-hand uniform. Parents/carers are welcome to make an appointment to see what items might be of use. There is no cost for this, but if possible a donation (of school uniform or money) will enable us to replenish our supplies for others in the school community.

We are happy to accept any good quality items of uniform that your child may have outgrown.  

If you are struggling with the cost of uniform, please contact the school office ( and we will try our best to assist.
