At George Abbot we firmly believe in the philosophy of a school uniform being worn with pride and hence insist that Year 7-11 students adhere to our clear guidelines.
School Uniform Shop
The School works in partnership with SPS Trading Ltd who run the School Shop. SPS School Shops is a third generation, family run business specialising in the operation of on-site School Shops selling uniform, sports kit and associated items according to the needs of the School. Their key aim is to supply quality merchandise at competitive prices whilst offering a high level of individual customer service.
Summer Holiday 2019 and Pre-Term Opening Days
This is a reminder that during the summer holiday the School Shop is open by appointment only.
Parents of all new students starting in September should call our office to make an appointment.
For parents of current GA students wishing to purchase top up uniform or sports kit and preferring to miss the last minute rush, we are happy to offer short ‘top up’ appointments over the holidays, starting next week. To schedule a short appointment please call our office on 020 8687 1502 at your earliest convenience. We especially advise this for parents of girls needing to purchase the new George Abbot School skirt.
Otherwise, top-up uniform and sports kit can be purchased before the start of the new school year on our ‘Pre-Term Opening Days’:
Monday 2 September – 10am to 5pm
Tuesday 3 September – 10am to 5pm
Wednesday 4 September – 10.30am to 5.30pm
The shop will be very busy on these days and appointments are not available – please just drop in or as suggested above, please consider booking a short ‘top-up’ appointment in August.
The shop will re-open on Thursday 5 September at the usual time of 11am and will remain open until the later time of 4.30pm. We will then also open on Friday 6 September from 11am to 2.15pm – this is an additional opening time.
Normal term time opening hours will resume Monday 9 September.

We accept cash, cheques, debit cards and most credit cards.
How to make an appointment
Please call SPS Trading Ltd’s office on 020 8687 1502 or email us at email@example.com with ’GA Appointments – Top-up Uniform’ as the subject and provide them with a couple of dates that you can come to the shop and whether you’d prefer to come in the morning or afternoon.
We will happily exchange or refund unwanted items returned to us within 30 days of purchase with your original receipt. The items should be in the same condition as when sold and all labels and packaging should be intact.
