Lost Property and Pre-worn Uniform

Lost Property

Lost-property_after-2We understand that replacing school uniform and equipment is expensive and so hopefully these guidelines will assist pupils in retrieving any items that they misplace in school. Please remember that there are over 1200 students at AGGS, all wearing the same uniform. We cannot recognise items as belonging to a particular person if they are not labelled. Labelling all items ensures they can be returned to its owner.

At AGGS, pupils must take responsibility for their own property. If they lose something they should first check the classroom or area where they believe the property was left. Then, they can check the boxes outside the lost property cupboard, near the Main Hall.

There are some boxes in the corridor near the Main Office for un-named lost items, one for lost umbrella’s and another for trainers.

If named items are found, Mrs Owen will send the student an email (copying in the parents) to let them know that it’s been handed in and asking them to collect their property from the Main Office. Students should check their school emails regularly if they have lost something. If an email has not been received either the lost item wasn’t named (so check the box in the corridor) OR it hasn’t been handed in.

Lost-property_afterAll items that are not labelled will be placed in the boxes in the corridor.

Each week the boxes are cleared and the items are moved into the lost property cupboard, they will be held there for a half term, if not collected they will be either sold (as below), donated to charity or thrown away.

We also have lots of spectacles, keys and small lost items outside the lost property cupboard.


Pre-worn Uniform

Firstly, Thank you so much for the donations of uniform, last year we raised £1350 all of which all goes to AGGS.

We have a variety of good quality, pre-worn AGGS uniform and some sports kit/equipment available to purchase throughout the year at very reasonable prices. If your daughter needs anything, requests to purchase pre-worn uniform can be sent via email to Karen Owen at

When your daughter leaves school or if she’s outgrown her uniform and/or PE kit, we will be happy to receive any current AGGS uniform that’s clean, and in good condition, preferably with name tags removed. Please label bags “uniform donations” and mark for the attention of Mrs Owen, they can be handed into our Reception staff or your daughter can leave them outside our Lost Property cupboard.
