Labelling Clothing and Other Items

As uniform and other items that students bring to school may be lost, we ask that all items are individually labelled. A lot of time, money and patience is wasted due to lost property. Stikins labels are quick and easy to add to clothing and other items, including bags, trainers and pencil cases and do not require any sewing or ironing. They will remain in place regardless of washing or tumble drying.  You can buy labels by clicking on the banner link below.
